CHINESE GRAND PRIX

If you are planning to walk from the pit garage nearest to Turn 1 to Race Control, best to take a bag with something to eat and drink: it's the longest walk on the F1 calendar. The Shanghai International Circuit is so big it's as though the measurements on the plan were written in centimetres, but were eventually built in inches. Two Zeppelin-like structures straddle the track between the building above the pits and the main grandstand and looking down from one of them makes the cars seem about the size of a slot racing model car. The facility is a testament to the spending power of this fast growing nation. The track itself features a very long 1300 metre straight and the long corners put a lot of strain on the tyres.
