The Korean GP is one of the less exciting tracks on the calendar. It’s been raced at three times, won by Alonso in 2010 and Vettel in 2011 & 2012.None of the three races at the Korea International Circuit have been won from pole, Alonso won from third on the grid and Vettel won from second both times. The track is 5.615km long with 18 corners and 55 race laps, giving a total race distance of 308.825km.
The lap record at the Korean GP was set by Sebastian Vettel in 2011, a time of 1:39.605 and an average speed of 203kph or 126mph. It is one of four tracks on the calendar in which Vettel holds the lap record, the others being the Buddh International Circuit, Yas Marina and the Circuit of the Americas.
A win for Mark Webber would be his first of the season and take him up to a career total of 1000 points.
The Silly Stats
Psy is 1.7m tall, so you could line 3303 of him head to foot around the circuit. It would also take around 1 hour, 52 minutes and 18 seconds to do the Gangnam Style dance around the circuit.
