The 1970 German Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Hockenheimring on 2 August 1970. It was the eighth race of the 1970 Formula One season. The 50-lap race was won by Lotus driver Jochen Rindt after he started from second position. Jacky Ickx finished second for the Ferrari team and McLaren driver Denny Hulme came in third.


On short notice following the drivers' demand for improved safety at the Nürburgring, the race was moved to Hockenheim for the first time in the history of the German Grand Prix as this track already had been fitted with Armco. F1 returned to an updated Nürburgring in 1971.


Last win, podium, points and race finish: Jochen Rindt
