CHINESE GRAND PRIX

Inspired by the Chinese character 'shang', the Shanghai International Circuit made its calendar debut in 2004 and has featured each year since. Another monolithic Hermann Tilke design, the facility is defined by the huge multi-storey race control tower which bridges the track and by the complex of floating paddock hospitality suites. And we do mean complex. Indeed, so difficult is it for paddock people to find their weekend homes that teams have been known to hand out maps. The circuit itself is another exercise in compromise, with tight, two tricky, winding-unwinding corner complexes (known as 'The Snails'), long, very high-speed start-finish and back straights and a technical middle section.
