It was the first Grand Prix to be held at Hockenheimring since the track was redesigned, which had seen the forest sections of the track removed and hence the length of the track shortened.
Michael Schumacher qualified on pole position in his Ferrari, setting a time of 1:14.389. Alex Yoong did not qualify for the race due to the 107% rule. Both Arrows A23 cars driven by Heinz-Herald Frentzen and Enrique Bernoldi who deliberately failed to qualify for previous round -the French Grand Prix- did qualify for this event in what would ultimately be the last GP weekend for Arrows F1.
Michael Schumacher won the race, with Juan Pablo Montoya in second, and Ralf Schumacher, Montoya's Williams team-mate, in third. Both Arrows cars retired from the race with mechanical problems, and it would prove to be the last race the team would compete in. Financial difficulties resulted in the team missing the remainder of the season, before going into liquidation at the end of the year. Enrique Bernoldi would not race in a Formula One Grand Prix again.
