The F1 season resumes in Shanghai this weekend

Round three of the 2015 Formula 1 calendar is here, and Shanghai’s International Circuit is playing host to it. The fans from all around the world always look forward to the racing in China, thanks to the track at Shanghai, being overtaking friendly and challenging for the drivers in general. 

But, the race this weekend at the smoggy atmosphere of Shanghai will particularly be interesting because of what happened a fortnight ago in Sepang. As Sebastian Vettel clinched his 40th win in Malaysia, he comprehensively defeated both Mercedes in a straight fight to the flag. That means, this weekend, all eyes will be on Mercedes, and how they cope with the Ferrari and Vettel attack.

Still, are many more things to look out for during the Grand Prix this weekend, and we have made a list of the 10 most important ones.

Previous Slide 10 / 10
The Rain in Shanghai can mix things up a lot

The Shanghai International Circuit’s atmosphere is most of the times gloomy and smog filled, but that doesn’t affect the racing. But, the F1 weatherman will be working extra hard this weekend to predict whether the rain is coming or not. There is a threat of rain over the weekend, but is it mostly timed for showers after the sessions are over in the evening, especially on Sunday.

However, rain can strike anytime, and we have seen in the past that the F1 weather Gods’ can have their own ways to surprise the paddock with occasion showers. This will certainly give all the team members few more grey hairs, but, we, the fans, will rejoice this type of sudden pandemonium.
