Now for the third time there is a Formula One race at Shanghai International Circuit.
Circuit architects Hermann Tilke and Peter Wahl on their creation: “The 5.4 kilometre racing track is shaped like the Chinese character ‘shang’, which stands for ‘high’ or ‘above’. Other symbols represented in the architecture originate from Chinese history, such as the team buildings arranged like pavilions in a lake to resemble the ancient Yuyan-Garden in Shanghai.
8000 workers worked 18 months 24 hours to create the circuit for more than 240 Billion Dollars. The Main Main Grandstand holds 29.000.
We were seated in Grandstand K row 8.
上 shàng – high, above
And note also what I found in the dictionary:
爱上 àishàng – to fell in love
