Formula one circuit in Shanghai, which will host Chinese Grand Prix 2014, was designed by Hermann Tilke in Peter Wahl for new millennium.

F1 cars can easily go over 300 km/h in straight between corner 13 and 14.
They started to build Shanghai International Circuit in 2003 and in 18 months transformed swamp terrain into circuit that will host Chinese Grand Prix 2014.

Laps: 57

Windy qualifications in desert Bahrain Grand Prix 2014 were marked with Mercedes´s superior form at the beginning of the F1 season 2014. Nico Rosberg won in front of Lewis Hamilton and Ricciardo, who had a penalty of 10 start positions, so Bottas took his place.

First night race Bahrain Grand Prix 2014 as a celebration of 10 years of Formula One on this desert island offered probably most interesting race in F1 2014 calendar. After qualifications the question was, which of the Mercedes drivers will win. Good start for both Marcedes drivers at Bahrain Grand Prix 2014 marked the whole race, especially when Lewis Hamilton overpassed Nico Rosberg in first corners of the race. A very good start also for the Williams team. What started as a boring race with Mercedes gaining a gap in front of other races changed in laps 18-19 when Mercedes´s drivers went hard at each other, it ended with Lewis Hamilton stop in boxes.

Middle of the race was marked with the pit stops and battles for places in between 4-10. In 40th lap came the shock when Maldonado crashed into Gutierrez, who made a spectacular flip in the air but came out of the car uninjured. The crash caused safety car to come onto the track. Bahrain Grand Prix 2014 really started in lap 47 when safety car went down and all of the sudden the best teams had their drivers fighting for positions between each other.

Even after Mercedes´s Paddy Lowe gave the drivers gentle reminder, they went quite aggressive at each other, but toward the end Hamilton gained steady second in front Rosberg. Who knows maybe another reminder came, which we didn’t hear.

Hamilton won Grand Prix 2014 in front of Rosberg and S. Perez in Force India and that was the happiest team in Bahrain with Hulkenberg on 5th place. Red Bull is probably not happy with 4th and 6th. Williams is showing consistency with 7th and 8th, Ferrari is mediocre on 9th and 10th. But complete disaster for Mclaren with both cars dropping out of Bahrain Grand Prix 2014. This was 250th race for Jenson Button, which makes him one of the few drivers with 250 or more races in F1.

Bahrain Grand Prix 2014 hosted by Bahrain International Circuit that consists of 6 separate circuits. It was designed by Herman Tike, who also designed circuits in Sepang, Shanghai, Istanbul and Valencia. F1 circuit, which will host Bahrain Grand Prix 2014, has 23 corners, 13 rights and 10 lefts. It has 4 straight, the longest is 1,09km long. The big run-off zones make Bahrain International Circuit one of the safest in F1 calendar. The location of the track in the middle of the desert makes it very slippery due to all the sand blown on to the tracks. They solved this by applying special sticky substance to the sand surrounding Bahrain International Circuit. They started with the project in 2002, fighting for the F1 race with big competitors in the oil rich area. The cost of the circuit was 150 million dollars and it became the centre of the sport in Persian Gulf.

Bahrain Grand Prix 2014 will be 10 years anniversary of the first F1 race in Bahrain. The first race held in 2004 was the first race of F1 in the Middle East. The first winner was Michael Schumacher with Ferrari. The most successful winner, who will also race in Bahrain Grand Prix 2014, is Fernando Alonso with three wins so far. The desert race had its most difficult time in 2011 when the race was cancelled due to unstable situation in Bahrain.  There were also a lot of controversies with the race next year. F1 was under a lot of pressure by Bahrain’s Human right activists to cancel the race. There was huge international coverage of the F1 races in 2011 and 2012 in Bahrain. 

Sebastian Vettel won Bahrain Grand Prix 2013 ahead of Lotus-Renault Kimi Räikkönen and Romain Grosjean.  The biggest battle was held between McLaren’s racers Button and Perez, who both complained about the comportment of the other driver. The qualification winner Rosberg was quickly falling behind and finished barely in the points.

This year’s Bahrain Grand Prix 2014 will be held under the reflectors, which makes it the second night race in F1 calendar.
