Chinese Grand Prix

A vision of a Grand Prix in China came to light in the mid1980`s and early 90`s as China began its slow move towards democracy. Hong Kong and Macau retained their own capitalist economy and political systems after China took over from British control. At the same time Special Economic Zones were established in provinces close to Hong Kong and this is where there was an inkling of Formula One. Zhuhai is a China`s premier tourist destination, being called the Chinese Riviera. This was where China built a Formula One track called the Zhuhai International Circuit for the 1999 F1 World Championship. The track failed to meet FIA safety standards and was cancelled.

By 2002 with the help of the Macau F3 Grand Prix organizers and design skills of Hermann Tilke completed the most expensive race track ever built up to that time. The Shanghai International Circuit was ready for the 2004 season. Our first view of the track was full of amazement with two bridges anchoring the pits with press facilities and between is a large grand stand. The area behind the pits houses the teams in a lake like water-park setting with the teams being housed on small islands in luxurious villas.

The Chinese Grand Prix is in its thirteenth season and enjoys a high reputation for organization and exciting races. The first race saw Ferrari drive Rubens Barrichello win followed Jenson Button and Kimi Raikkonen in third place. A year later it was Alonso who took the race and also the championship for himself and the Renault team The Ferraris of Schumacher and Raikkonen took the following two wins and Mercedes dominating the rest of the events with Vettel winning in 2009 for Red Bull, and Alonso taking the 2013 race for Ferrari.
