Moreover, art works on F1 by renowned painters and a rich variety of multimedia datas will help visitors learn all aspects of F1 and how the event achieves lasting fame.

Formula One cars are the fastest road course racing cars in the world. Since the First FIA Driver’s World Championship was held at Silverstone, UK in 1950, the race has become one of the world’s most popular events.

Shanghai’s metro operator will cut the wait between trains on certain parts of Metro line 11 this weekend to accommodate passengers heading to and from the F1 race at the SIC.
