Based on last year's Korean GP, you can visit one of two zones at the Yeongam International Circuit. The twilight zone or the construction zone. The former because of the delayed start time to better serve the bulk of F1's TV viewers in Europe and the latter because the venue came very close to cancelling the race due to not getting the circuit ready in time. With a whole year to address this issue, the race this year should be far better experience for the fans willing to attend and the TV viewers shouldn't be too disappointed either. The circuit is a good all-round circuit featuring all kinds of corners that are not too hard on the tyres so expect newly crowned double world champion Sebastian Vettel to have a blast in his Red Bull. McLaren, and especially Jenson Button have been strong over the last couple of races and they should continue to do well as Red Bull have admitted to spend more time 'experimenting' over the last few races so that they can be strong in these venues next year. Ferrari too may get the chance for a few more podium finishes with Fernando Alonso as their focus now fully shifts to hitting the ground running in 2012.
