Scuderia Ferrari heads into the third round of the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship this Sunday at Shanghai International Circuit intent on showcasing its speed in the Chinese Grand Prix.
Shanghai, with its equal mix of straights and corners, imposes unique and quite high demands on the tyres, which has led to close racing as well as plenty of overtaking in the past. But the weather is also often unpredictable, ranging from bright sunshine to heavy rain: sometimes in the same weekend. Interestingly, for the season’s third round of the championship, Pirelli has gone for an unusual tyre nomination, with a gap between the selected compounds – medium, soft and ultrasoft.
Follow us for the latest updates and results from the Shanghai International Circuit as the second practice session ahead of the 2018 Chinese Grand Prix is about to get underway, with Scuderia Ferrari drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen at the wheel of the SF71H, ready to once again challenge Mercedes and Red Bull.
