2011 Formula 1 Korean Grand Prix

Back to back weekend!!!
While Vettel wrapped up his championship, there's still a few points left for Red Bull to grab for their double WCC. By crowning WCC here in Korea would sound a bit revenge by their bad luck last year in pouring rain.

I'm hoping to see two DRS zone here, and by the looks of the layout, there should be three.

Race Date: 16 Oct 2011
Circuit Name: Korea International Circuit
Number of Laps: 55
Circuit Length: 5.615 km
Race Distance: 308.630 km
Lap Record: 1:50.257 - F Alonso (2010)

Tire Compounds Provided:
Prime:
Soft (Yellow)
Option: Super-Soft (Red)
Rain: Intermediate (Light Blue), Wet (Orange)

It's hard to believe that a year has passed since I last watched the Korean GP. I feel like we were just here. Talk about a reality check.

Should be a pretty good race. I remember it was fun to watch last year's inaugural Korean GP race in the wet.

Are most teams pretty much going to start focusing on developmental testing for 2012?

DRS will be btwn turns 2 & 3, seems like a really long DRS zone. The also moved back the wall btwn turns 16&18, which sounds like a good move

Just one single DRS zone? They could've put 2-3 in this track...

Plus they should've design the pit entry at Turn 16, and start the speed limit zone earlier to offset the missed corners of 17 and 18.

Did you really think Last years Korean GP was boring? It was a slick track, with rain, and ran into the night. Webber shunted, Vettel blew his engine from the lead, and Hamilton and Alonso traded a few blows near the end.

I thought it wasn't that bad. I can't wait to hear how the surface is now.

the only thing that sucked about last years race, was the rain delay, having any kind of delay for a race that starts at 2am EST is not a good thing for us who woke up at 6am that morning and were awake for almost 24 hours by the time the race was done. Other than that, I thought it was a pretty good race

I agree, I thought the actual race was pretty entertaining, at least for 2010.

I wonder how the Pirellis will do on the new track surface.

Yah, I fell asleep during the red flag session. But the race is quite good, and definitely dramatic!

Patience rewards you, like Canada this year, a lengthy 2+ hour delay, we have exciting race from Jenson!!!
