The Circuit:

There are some good overtaking opportunities at the Shanghai International Circuit especially at turn 14: the hairpin following the very long very fast back straight where cars often make mistake while under pressure and while putting other cars under pressure though it can take until the pit straight for a position to be firmly won or defended.


The circuit has had 7 different winners in its 7 years, Barrichello won a classic race at the inaugural Chinese Grand Prix in 2004 and another classic in 2010 saw Jenson Button win, he had been a second away from doing so in 2004.
