7-9 April - How will the weather affect this year's Chinese Grand Prix?

The Chinese Grand Prix has been held at the Shanghai International Circuit every year since the first Chinese Grand Prix in 2004. The spectacular circuit is popular with drivers and fans alike, with sweeping curves, hairpin bends and long straights.

How does weather affect racing?

Different weather conditions can result in very different races, and Formula 1 teams adapt their strategy accordingly, for example using different tyres in wet conditions, and taking account of cross winds which can cause stability problems at high speeds.
