Feel The Heat In Istanbul At The Turkish Grand Prix

Well, it sure was a big day for Lewis Hamilton at The Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai. The British driver secured his first win of the season for McLaren. He stopped German ace Sebastian Vettel from scoring a hat trick and winning three races in a row. The RBR-Renault driver may have been left licking his wounds on the 17th, but a season is a marathon not a sprint. There is still a long way to go and the next stop is Istanbul.

This is the setting for the 2011 Formula 1 DHL Turkish Grand Prix. It is the fourth race of this year’s season. The event takes place over the weekend of the 6th to the 8th of May 2011.

The Grand Prix timetable consists of two practice runs on Friday the 6th of May, held between 10.00 am and 11.30. The second practice run that day begins at two in the afternoon, finishing at 3.30. There will be a third practice run on Saturday at 11.00. This is followed by a qualifying round that afternoon at two.
The race will take place on Sunday the 8th of May at 15.00 local time.

The Grand Prix will take place at the world renowned Istanbul Park. It has a circuit length extending 5.338 km with a race distance of 309.396 km. The race goes on for an action packed 58 laps. The record for the fastest lap time belongs to the Colombian race car driver JP Montoya. He logged a time of 1:24.770 in 2005.
The Istanbul Park circuit has an illustrious past, but we now look forward.

Can Lewis Hamilton make it a double? Will Vettel reclaim the number one spot? Will Hamilton’s team mate and fellow Brit Jenson Button rise from fourth place and claim his first victory?

We’ll have to wait and see!
