F1 2024: Chinese GP - Shanghai (Apr 21)

F1 2024: Chinese GP - Shanghai (Apr 21)

Schedule:
https://www.formula1.com/en/racing/2024/China.html

This is a sprint race weekend.

Shanghai International Circuit


Quote:
Shanghai
When was the track built?

In April 2003, a marshland in the Jiading District of Shanghai was earmarked for Formula 1 greatness. Eighteen months and around $450 million later, the state-of-the-art Shanghai International Circuit was complete.
When was its first Grand Prix?

The 2004 season featured two new races, one of which was the Chinese Grand Prix (the other was Bahrain). If either were added to try and stop Ferrari from winning everything, however, it didn’t work – Michael Schumacher won in Bahrain, while Rubens Barrichello triumphed in China.
What’s the circuit like?

The circuit’s pleasing form when seen from the air – it’s designed to look like the Chinese symbol for ‘shang’, meaning upwards – is equally pleasing to the drivers on terra firma. There’s a unique start to the lap as the drivers fly into the ever-tightening Turns 1 and 2, before they dart left through 3 and 4. The super-high g force Turns 7 and 8 are loved by the drivers, while the circuit also features one of the longest straights on the calendar, the 1.2km stretch that separates Turns 13-14.
Why go?

Shanghai has expanded itself into one of the world’s most dynamic and lively cities since the start of the millennium, making it an awesome F1 tourist stop. The sprawling Pudong district is chock full of hip bars and amazing restaurants. Then when it’s time to go racing, just hop on the Shanghai Metro’s Line 11 and get off at the Shanghai Circuit stop 60 minutes later.
Where is the best place to watch?

We’re going to recommend Grandstand K, overlooking the Turn 14-15 hairpin, where you’ll be in the best seats to watch all the overtaking. Alternatively, head for Turn 6, the track’s other best passing spot, where Daniel Ricciardo sealed his 2018 win with a brave move on Valtteri Bottas.

It's been 5 years since the F1 cars raced in Shanghai.
What are your predictions?
I think Ferrari will do great in the sprint race. In Suzuka it showed that their car was easy and fast to set up and they solved their tyre degradation problems of last year.
So in the sprint race, I think they'll beat the RB's:
1. LEC
2. SAI
3. VER

For the main race, I think Max will be the #1 though:

1. VER
2. LEC
3. SAI
4. PER
5. NOR
6. ALO
7. HAM
8. PIA
9. RUS
10. STR

That Lewis Hamilton will have some politically incorrect attire or statement that will have the FIA scurrying off to make amends with the Chicoms. Always good fun

But will someone care?
I mean, Hamilton is nowadays a driver that hasn't won a GP in almost 2,5 years and barely makes it in the top 10 of the WDC
His main competitor in the WDC is currently Lance Stroll...

you know, past performance is no guarantee of future results....

My take is he whines quite a bit. I get it he's dissapointed. I'm sure Alonso is as well and he's been driving a non-competitive car for decades. But other than the infamous GP2 rant against Honda, which Honda has forgiven him LOL, he is a balance of wanting more but still professing confidence in the team.

Five years after the last race at Shanghai is not exactly an Einstein decision for the first sprint

This, but I think Norris splits the Ferraris, not sure which Ferrari will be faster here, maybe Charles.

6. Alo
7. Rus
8. Ham

beyond that, it's all up for grabs.

I'd root for a ferrari sprint win, but really have a hard time betting against max.
