ďThe Chinese GP has been on the calendar for quite a while and itís held on one of the most technical and difficult tracks of the year. Two of the corners are especially important: the first one and the one leading to the very long straight, over a kilometre in length. Theyíre both very technical and itís difficult to find the right line because the track there is also very wide. They are challenging, not only in qualifying when you need to do just one lap, but also in the race. Looking after tyres is one of the key points in Shanghai, itís the most important job to do on Sunday in order to be fast for the whole race. In the past Iíve had some good races here with Ferrari, coming very close to winning. Maybe this time weíll get that little bit of luck, so that we can really celebrate the thousandth Formula 1 race.Ē

ďI donít know the Shanghai track that well, having only raced there once, last year. I have good memories of qualifying, less so of the race itself. But overall, I like the track a lot because there are many different types of corner that you donít find elsewhere on the calendar, especially turn 1, and also 13 which leads onto the long straight. Usually, the Chinese race is good fun, because the weather can be unpredictable and rain can arrive when you least expect it. Itís the thousandth race in the history of Formula 1 and I hope the car will be as good as it was in Bahrain, so that I can continue to go for the results we deserve.Ē
