Much like the city it resides in, the Shanghai International Circuit is a wonderful combination of the traditional and the modern. Designed to showcase Shanghai’s splendour to the world, authorities spared no expense in creating this modern track housed in stunning contemporary architecture. The track itself is inspired by Chinese culture, with the designers drawing inspiration from the Chinese ‘shang’ symbol (meaning ‘high’ or ‘above’).
With its highly technical low speed sections, winding turns and exceptional high-speed straights, Shanghai International Circuit offers a thrilling spectator experience through challenging and intense racing opportunities.
Scuderia Ferrari will be looking to repeat the outcome of last season’s qualifying session, when the Maranello team locked out the front row of the grid. Sebastian Vettel qualified on pole position with a time of 1:31.095.
