Welcome to race day at the 16th and penultimate round of the 2007 FIA Formula One World Championship, the Chinese Grand Prix at Shanghai International Circuit.

Thus far Sunday has been dry with a little wind, but no sign of the edge of Typhoon Krosa, which is sweeping through the region and which may yet bring some havoc to the race.

There is still a 90 per cent chance of thunderstorms and high winds, with a current ambient temperature high prediction of 27 degrees Celsius.

The race will run over 56 laps of the 5.451 kilometre (3.387 mile) track, or 305.066 kilometres (189.568 miles). It starts at 1400 hours local time, which is eight hours ahead of GMT.
