This year's season ends with a final trio of flyaway races. The first two of these were back-to-back races in Japan and China. These pair of Asian races had striking similarities in terms of design, layout and weather.
Fuji in Japan hosted to round 15 of the championship. Visited for the time since the 1970s, Fuji has been heavily revised by Herman Tilke.
As the track was unknown to the teams, the circuit layout had to be simulated to assess the ideal set-up before arriving at the track. The rain that blighted the weekend made it hard to ascertain who made the better job of prejudging the circuit.
China, meanwhile, has has been on the calendar for four years, however this totally modern track was also designed by Tilke.
