Mark Webber: “It's a challenging venue and I really enjoy the track, it's a nice circuit to drive. There was a massive crowd there last year and it was a good atmosphere.

The track is similar to Korea with mainly long straights in sector 1 followed by a very busy sector 2 and 3, so we need to get the balance right between downforce and top speed.

It should be reasonably straightforward weather-wise and I'm looking forward to getting out there.”

Sebastian Vettel: “I loved the track layout last year, but not just because I won the race. With an average speed of 235kph, the course is the second quickest of the year after Monza.

There is a lot of elevation change around the lap which adds to the fun, from as much as 8% downhill and up to 10% uphill; it’s like a roller coaster! It really has emerged as one of the most challenging circuits on the calendar for the drivers."
