Sebastian Vettel

What's your favourite memory of the Chinese GP? "My first win with Red Bull Racing in 2009. We had a good qualifying, followed by an amazing race.

There was a lot of rain, but we held it together and got our first team win and one-two.

What's your favourite place to go or thing to do in Shanghai? "Every time I go to Shanghai I like to explore a bit more, but I really like Pudong, near the river."

Favourite part of circuit? "The circuit has lots of corners, making it hard for the tyres and tricky for the drivers. I really like the middle sector.

Turns 12 and 13 are difficult to get right, as they demand a lot of technique, especially Turn 13 which leads into a really long straight."

Mark Webber

What's your best memory of the Chinese GP? "Coming from the back of the grid to finish on the podium in third place in 2011."

Where's your favourite place to go in Shanghai? "I went to a really nice restaurant with some of the boys from the team, Din Tai Fung Shanghai. They do great soup dumplings, a Shanghai specialty!"

And your favourite part of the circuit? "The middle sector, Turns 5 and 6, it’s a nice and flowing section and it’s very important to get the technique right there."
