Albert Park
Melbourne, Australia
58 5.30 km (3.30 miles)

Malaysian Grand Prix

No. of Laps Lap length
Sepang International Circuit
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
56 5.54 km (3.44 miles)

No. of Laps Lap length
Bahrain International Circuit
Sakhir, Bahrain
57 5.41 km (3.36 miles)

April 15, 2007 Felipe Massa
Ferrari

Gran Premio de España

No. of Laps Lap length
Circuit de Catalunya
Barcelona, Spain
66 4.65 km (2.89 miles)
Hosting a Grand Prix since 1991, the Circuit de Catalunya is well-known among the F1 teams (many of whom use it for out-of-season testing). This is, however a difficult circuit to get right, with a bumpy road surface and mix of fast and slow corners, making tire choice a constant struggle. Date Winner
May 13, 2007 Felipe Massa
Ferrari

Grand Prix de Monaco

No. of Laps Lap length
Circuit de Monaco
Monte Carlo, Monaco
78 3.34 km (2.08 miles)
Perhaps the most famous circuit in F1 history, as well as the shortest, Monaco is notoriously difficult to win. With overtaking made very difficult, and very few flat sections of track, getting pole is vital, but even then, a slip of concentration on one of the incredibly sharp corners can finish a driver's race early. Date Winner
May 27, 2007 Fernando Alonso
McLaren Mercedes

Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve
Montreal, Canada
70 4.36 km (2.71 miles)

Never Magny-Cours, France
70 4.91 km (2.74 miles)

No. of Laps Lap length
Silverstone Circuit
Silverstone, UK
60 5.14 km (3.19 miles)

Over the intervening years the British Grand Prix was moved around the country, but after several changes to the circuit it settled at Silverstone. Date Winner
July 8, 2007 Kimi Räikkönen
Ferrari

Grand Prix of Europe

No. of Laps Lap length
Nurburgring
Nurburg, Germany
60 5.15 km (3.20 miles)

Date Winner
July 22, 2007 Fernando Alonso

No. of Laps Lap length
Hungaroring
Budapest, Hungary
70 4.38 km (2.72 miles)
The track was completed in 1986, when Hungary was still behind the iron curtain, and was an instant fan favorite. With tight and twisting corners, this track has led to some of the most exciting races in F1 history. Date Winner
August 5, 2007 Lewis Hamilton
McLaren Mercedes

Turkish Grand Prix

No. of Laps Lap length
Istanbul Park
Istanbul, Turkey
58 5.34 km (3.31 miles)
Designed by the same man who came up with the circuits in Sakhir (Bahrain) and Shanghai, this is only the third time that the country will play host to a Grand Prix. Technically this Grand Prix takes place in Asia and not Europe, as the circuit lies to the east of the Bosphorous. Date Winner
August 26, 2007 Felipe Massa
Ferrari

Italian Grand Prix

No. of Laps Lap length
Autodromo Nazionale di Monza
Milan, Italy
53 5.79 km (3.60 miles)
The site of some of F1's most famous victories, and most horrific crashes, this is the circuit that offers the most drama in the F1 calendar. One of the oldest tracks in the season, it has historically been Europe's leading permanent track, and is as exciting today as it ever was. Date Winner
September 9, 2007 Fernando Alonso
McLaren Mercedes

Belgian Grand Prix

No. of Laps Lap length
Circuit of Spa Francorchamps 44 7.00 km (4.35 miles)
Made up of public roads, this is one of the longest and most dangerous tracks in F1. It is a strong driver favorite, offering the perfect combination of complex corners and picturesque views of the pine forests of the Ardenne, and it is a highlight of the calendar. Date Winner
September 16, 2007 Kimi Räikkönen
Ferrari

Japanese Grand Prix

No. of Laps Lap length
Fuji Speedway
Mount Fuji, Japan
TBC 4.56 km (2.84 miles)

Chinese Grand Prix

No. of Laps Lap length
Shanghai International Circuit
Shanghai, China
56 5.45 km (3.39 miles)
Another relatively new track, Shanghai has been described as China’s gateway to the world of F1 racing, and is a marvel of modern architecture. Unintentionally mimicking the Chinese symbol for ‘high’ or ‘above’, it was the most expensive grand prix circuit ever built. Date Winner
October 7, 2007 Kimi Räikkönen
Ferrari

Brazilian Grand Prix

No. of Laps Lap length
Autodromo Carlos Pace
Sao Paulo, Brazil
71 4.30 km (2.68 miles)
Situated among congested housing in Sao Paulo, this track is another legendary site for F1. In the wake of the successes of Emerson Fittipaldi and Carlos Pace -- who gives his name to the circuit -- the country became an international hub for motor sport. Since then the national passion for the sport has made the track a shrine for Brazilians and makes the Brazilian Grand Prix as much of a carnival as it is a sporting event. Date Winner
