F1 Shanghai circuit
When the Shanghai International Circuit was built in 2004 it was the most expensive F1 circuit facility, built at a cost of $240 million. That record was demolished when the F1 Abu Dhabi Yas Marina circuit was completed in 2009. The Shanghai F1 track is known for its stunning architecture, and the 5.4 kilometre-long circuit is designed to resemble the Chinese character 'shang', which means 'high' or 'above'. The course has numerous features, all of which make for an exciting F1 race. These include several winding turns that result in changes of acceleration and deceleration, as well as high demands on the car and driver. The Shanghai circuit also has high-speed straights where cars can reach speeds of over 300 kilometres-per-hour. The current Shanghai lap record was set by Lewis Hamilton in 2017 when he completed it in 1:31.678.
