About Shanghai International Circuit

It was designed as the race circuit for the new millennium and the modern track, with its stunning architecture. It achieved its goal of becoming China's gateway to the world of Formula One racing since its debut in 2004.

The 5.4 kilometre racing track is shaped like the Chinese character shang, which stands for high or above. Hermann Tilke and Peter Wahl were the architects of the Circuit.

Other 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.
