2012 FORMULA 1 KOREAN GRAND PRIX |

Located on the coast in Yeongam, a county in the southwest corner of South Korea, 400km from Seoul, the area is quite rural. That, however, is intended to change as a town grows up around the circuit – it’s certainly a strange way to go about building a street circuit.

Circuit Length:    5.621 km (3.493 miles)
Race Length: 55 laps, 309.155 km (192.100 miles)
Lap Record: 1:39.605 (S Vettel, Red Bull, 2011)

Last Year:           1. Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull-Renault, 1h 38:01.994 [more...]
2. Lewis Hamilton, McLaren-Mercedes, +12.019 s
3. Mark Webber, Red Bull-Renault, +12.477 s
P. Lewis Hamilton, McLaren-Mercedes, 1:35.820 [more...]
FL. Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull, 1:39.605
