Sebastian Vettel
Q: What's your favourite memory of the Chinese GP?
SV: My first win with Red Bull Racing in 2009. We had a good qualifying, followed by an amazing race. There was a lot of rain, but we held it together and got our first team win and one-two.

Q: What's your favourite place to go or thing to do in Shanghai?
SV: Every time I go to Shanghai I like to explore a bit more, but I really like Pudong, near the river.

Q: Favourite part of circuit?
SV: The circuit has lots of corners, making it hard for the tyres and tricky for the drivers. I really like the middle sector. Turns 12 and 13 are difficult to get right, as they demand a lot of technique, especially Turn 13 which leads into a really long straight.

Mark Webber
Q: What's your best memory of the Chinese GP?
MW: Coming from the back of the grid to finish on the podium in third place in 2011.

Q: here's your favourite place to go in Shanghai?
MW: I went to a really nice restaurant with some of the boys from the team, Din Tai Fung Shanghai. They do great soup dumplings, a Shanghai specialty!

Q: And your favourite part of the circuit?
MW: The middle sector, Turns 5 and 6, it's a nice and flowing section and it's very important to get the technique right there.

Felipe Nasr and Valtteri Bottas head out to begin the fourth and final day
