Welcome to the Shanghai International Circuit, located just North West of Shanghai. A track that has featured just 3 times in PSF1 history, is the perfect venue for tonights finale. Plenty of overtaking spots and fun corners make this circuit one of the most exciting on the calendar. The drivers are in for a fun race tonight!

Plenty of overtaking spots tonight in Shanghai. The first one being through turns 1,2 3 and 4. A move can be initiated at turn 1, before finishing it off at 4. And if you can’t get the move done there, there is another opportunity immediately after at the turn 6 hairpin. You could argue you can overtake at turn 9 too, but this is usually only when the driver in front has run wide and hit the curb. The next spot comes at turn 11, before 13 comes and you can slip into the slipstream for an opportunity along the straight, or down at the hairpin at turn 14. You can expect to see a mixture of 1 and 2 stops here in China.

We head into tonights F1 race, with legominecraft3 sitting pretty at the top of the table with a huge lead of 21 points. Sean is going to need some sort of miracle to stand a chance of winning the title tonight. But as we’ve seen in the past, literally anything can happen, so this title isn’t won until all the drivers are safely across the line. With a few big names potentially missing tonights race too, it gives those in desperate need of points a chance to finish higher up. With roughly 4-5 drivers in serious danger of relegation, they will need a good race in order to secure their spot in F1 next season!

The weather for tonight is looking pretty stable. Whilst F2 and F3 will see a sunny qualifying, F1  will have a bit of cloud cover during the fight for pole. The race is looking dry, with sunny spells throughout the evening of racing.

That’s all for this week, and this season in fact. We’ll be back next season! But for now, check out Lego’s hotlap below!
