Since 2004 the Formula 1 race of China takes place close to the metropolis Shanghai at the Shanghai International Circuit.
Circuit architects Hermann Tilke and Peter Wahl created a race track in harmony between the elements of nature and technology. Hermann Tilke built a very special turn which is shaped like a spiral. At the track you will find symbols represented in the architecture originate from Chinese history, such as the team buildings arranged like pavilions in a lake to resemble the ancient Yuyan-Garden in Shanghai.
The main grandstand with 29,000 seats provides a spectacular view of almost 80 percent of the circuit.
