The Chinese Grand Prix has been held in Shanghai for 15 years, and has not gained popularity among local fans. However, the director of Formula 1 on the issues of sponsorship and commercial cooperation, Murray Barnett, announced his desire to organize another race in the China.

Murray Barnett: “We would like to hold two races in China. Perhaps not in the near future, because the calendar is already pretty tight, but we would like to find a place for another Grand Prix in this country.

We analyze different options to interest the audience. We can not just come to Shanghai for three days of the race weekend – you need to be here all year round, get closer to the fans to create a large audience of fans.

We would like Guan Yu Zhou to debut in Formula 1. But, in the end, the decision for the teams. It seems to me that they understand what fantastic opportunities China has, and you never know – maybe very soon we will see Guan Yu Zhou in Formula 1.

We found out what was done wrong during the Grand Prix of South Korea and India, we will try to avoid these mistakes. The organizers of both races had short-term contracts, and we believe in long-term investments. ”
