Improve F1 Tracks-Shanghai Circuit

Improve F1 Tracks-Shanghai Circuit

Stephen C.
Description
Fourth in my series of how to improve the current F1 tracks. This one is the Shanghai International circuit in China. The first change is the first hairpin [1], here I have lengthened the straight to make a tighter hairpin. This now leads onto a longer straight than was there previously. The fast 'sweeper' at [2] has gone, to be replaced by a quick left hander, which could be profiled similar to turn 8. This turn leads onto a new section that starts with a hairpin [3], there could be overtaking here, after the long run from [2], with a fast right turn. This then leads onto a series of kinks and quick 'chicanes' [4]. I would make this part of the circuit more undulating, with dips and rises. The last part of [4] I would make very challenging, with a blind entry and quick rise up to [5]. [5] should open up overtaking opportunities on the following straight, with the turn being more open on exit but challenging on entry. The final changed part is at the end of the lap [6]. I have sacrificed the quick 'kink' at the last corner for a corner very similar to the pit entry, tight and right angled, it could produce the overtaking we see at the pits, this leads to a quick chicane back onto the main straight.---The alterations were not made considering the contours and area around the track. Sorry for the lack of detail, but the layout was the main part. [The old layout is in grey and the new parts are circled].
