This weekend QNET takes to the starting line in China!
Formula 1 – the most competitive, prestigious, high-tech and high-speed sport in the world – races into Shanghai this weekend, the booming symbol of China’s powerhouse economy and the world’s biggest city.
Our team, the Marussia F1 Team, are one of only twelve teams in this pinnacle competition, and they’re feeling pretty good about the event after such a positive start to the season. And of course, yours truly, QNET VFan, is just as excited!
The Marussia F1 Team has had a much-needed three-week break after QNET’s home GP in Malaysia, and the drivers and crew are feeling fresh and enthusiastic about this weekend. I had a chat with lead driver Timo Glock and he told me that the 5.451km-Shanghai International Circuit is his favourite track, because it leads to such a demanding and unpredictable race… and I sure believed him about this when I saw his press release, in which he called the circuit ‘special’!
For our new kid on the block, Charles Pic, this will be another first-time circuit (he also calls the Shanghai circuit ‘challenging’) and another chance to show what he’s made of in the hard-fought world of Formula 1.
If you still need another reason to be excited about this event, think about this: China has a population of over one billion people. That’s right, through QNET’s official partnership with the Marussia F1 Team, exposing your business to such an enormous market should get anyone’s heart racing!
