Shanghai proves to be a tough race each year on tires and cars, but Nasr is confident his team will get it right in China. Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes got it very right last year and won the race by a whole 18 seconds.
"The track has a combination of high-speed and low-speed corners, which is quite demanding for the tyres and challenging to find a good balance for the car," Nasr said. "Besides that, the circuit has a straight which is the longest on the whole race calendar."
Nasr added that the straight "could be positive for us as we have a strong top speed. As the track has some low-speed corners, traction can be important as well."
"I am looking forward to a positive race weekend and to scoring points again."
The Chinese Grand Prix will take place on April 12th, 2 a.m. EDT.
