    In this week's Friday Focus we take a closer look at the Korean International Circuit. The track is a 5.62 km (3.49 mi) motorsport circuit located in Yeongam, South Jeolla, South Korea, 400 kilometres south of Seoul.

    Find below two pictures that give a great overview of the circuit where the F1 World Championship will continue this weekend.

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.
