The Chinese Grand Prix, which has been a feature on the Formula 1 calendar since 2004, was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the 2021 edition has been postponed for the same reasons. Despite being called the Shanghai International Circuit, the track is located far from the eponymous metropolis.

Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix 2021

Despite China’s lack of motorsport heritage, the Chinese Grand Prix has been a regular fixture on the Formula 1 calendar since 2004. No expenses were spared during the design and construction of the track and Located on the outskirts of Shanghai, the 5.4-kilometer circuit features a blend of high-speed corners, slow kinks, and two long straights.

Famous circuit designer Hermann Tilke designed the circuit with the Chinese word “Shang” in mind, which means “to ascend” in Chinese.

The long straights between turn 13 and 14 provide an ample amount of overtaking opportunity especially with the use of DRS, which in recent years has led to some exciting racing. However, focusing on straight-line speed alone isn’t enough as the second sector has a mix of slow and medium-speed turns which means striking a balance in the car’s setup might prove tricky to master for some.

Some of the circuit’s more memorable moments include Lewis Hamilton beaching his car at the entry of the pit lane in 2007, Sebastian Vettel winning Red Bull’s first-ever Grand Prix in 2009, and Nico Rosberg securing his and Mercedes’ first wins in 2012.

The Chinese Grand Prix 2020

Unfortunately, the 2020 race was called off due to the onset of the novel coronavirus. The 2019 edition saw Mercedes romp to their third consecutive one-two of the season. Lewis Hamilton jumped teammate Valteri Bottas at the start after the Finn secured pole position on Saturday. Sebastian Vettel finished third with Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc rounding out the top five places. Pierre Gasly secured the first fastest lap of his career.

When is the 2021 Chinese Grand Prix on the F1 calendar?
The Chinese Grand Prix was set to mark the third round of the championship until its postponement due to COVID-19. It's yet to be announced whether it will be rescheduled or cancelled.
