Delft University of Technology from the Netherlands has won the German Formula Student competition held at the Formula 1 track of Hockenheim. After winning the British edition, the Dutch scored overall victory with their own developed electric vehicle, completing numerous static and dynamic tasks.

Where Formula Student Team Delft had to run their own developed wet tires at Silverstone, they could successfully now use their dry weather tires which are unique in compound and size.

Delft won the BASF Best Use of Fiber Reinforced Plastics Award and became first in the Autocross and Skidpad categories and just missed out the Endurance win to its main rival from Zürich that was ranked second in the overall standings. The team from Stuttgart – that recently bettered world’s acceleration record – became third.
