The Chinese Grand Prix is one of the best value for the money grands prix on the calendar. The Shanghai International Circuit is easy to get to, has outstanding facilities and the main grandstand boasts an amazing view of nearly the entire track.
The 2016 edition runs from the 15 to the 17 April and it will be interesting to see if the recent decline in spectator numbers has been averted by the reduction in price of all ticket categories. The support races will once again be provided by the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia, hosting its rounds 1 and 2 during the race weekend.

Mexico City has stepped in the Latin American race slot left vacant by Brazil since the building work to revamp the facilities started at the Interlagos track. If the return of F1 to the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in 2015 is anything to go by, let's hope the Mexican organisers can emulate the huge popularity of the 6 Hours of São Paulo.
