Chinese GP – Race Result

China Flag The second wet race in a row, bad pit stop timing and gravel trap for Hamilton (who said the driver mistakes are no longer punished ?), first China win for Raikkonen and 3 drivers with realistic chance to win the title going to the final race of the season… Behind the leaders the best race ever for Toro Rosso and best result of the season for Jenson Button and Honda.

Chinese Grand Prix – Race Preview

China Flag
Formula 1 will come to Shanghai for the fourth time this weekend. This will also be the 4th time
F1 Wolf and the gang will be there. Here are some hints for those planning to travel there.
Shanghai Track
Shanghai Track, picture: Shanghai Circuit
The Shanghai circuit is one of the Tilkedromes featuring long straight ending with a tight corner – in Shanghai it is the Turn 14 and it is pretty much a U turn. Cars break here from over 300km/h to below 90km/h, and not always with success. The run off tarmac is large enough though… This straight and the corner used to provide some overtaking opportunities but with aero getting more and more car to car racing unfriendly, who knows what 2007 race will bring …

Last year the race was wet and cold and tyre choices and tyre performances made the difference. The weekend was dominated by Renaults. In the race however it was Michael Schumacher who got the tyres right and finally managed to win the Chinese GP on the 3rd attempt.

Chinese GP – The Next One To Be Tobacco Ad Free ?

OK, it is not going to happen overnight, but it looks like the biggest tobacco market is ready to make some steps to rein in smoking. The Chinese news report today (The Beijing News) that China, the world’s biggest cigarette producer and consumer, will ban all tobacco advertising by 2011. The Shanghai F1 race contract runs only through 2010. It will be interesting to see what will Bernie come up with when negotiating new, tobacco free one :-)
