Shanghai International Circuit
Directions
Located in Jiangsu Province, 40 minutes from Shanghai's People's Square and 5 minutes from the Jia Liu Expressway.

The adventurous circuit is designed by renowned specialist Hermann Tilke, who was also responsible for the new circuits in Bahrain and Malaysia and carried out modifications to the Nurburgring and Hockenheim's circuit.

The track is shaped like the Chinese character 'shang' standing for 'high' or 'above'.

There is accommodation for up to 200,000 spectators with main grandstand holding 29,500 and overlooking almost 80 per cent of the track.

There are two opposing stands on the north-east part of the circuit holding more than 10,000 each with roofs shaped like lotus leaves and 150,000 people can be housed on the rest of the enclosure in temporary stands or on the surrounding banking.

The team buildings are constructed on a special island on a lake on the infield.

The technical track and seven left-hand and seven right-hand bends place enormous emphasis on the car's aerodynamics and the driver's stamina and concentration.
