MILESTONE
The Shanghai International Circuit has all the hallmarks of a Hermann Tilke-designed racetrack: it's wide, it has a long straight followed by a hairpin and it has some impressive architecture. Resembling the Chinese symbol for "high", Shanghai's track layout is a demanding mix of straights, tight turns and hairpins. With so many slow and medium speed corners over one lap, the car must have a perfect balance, achieved through an efficient aero package. Shanghai also has two long straights so engineers must, therefore, provide a set-up which also offers high top speeds and low drag levels without compromising the cornering stability. The track measures, on average, between 13 and 15 metres in width so offers ample room for overtaking moves. The Chinese fans haven't supported their round of the championship as much as some would have hoped, but there's still a great atmosphere on the grid, in front of the massive main grandstand.
