This will be the fourth Korean GP. F1 competed in South Korea for the first time in 2010. It was the 17th race of a 19-grand prix season.
The Korea International Circuit is one of five anti-clockwise circuits on the current F1 calendar. The others are: Singapore's Marina Bay Street Circuit, Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina, Austin's Circuit of the Americas and Sao Paulo's Interlagos.
Sebastian Vettel from Red Bull has won the Korean GP the past two years. Vettel has seven victories this season, including the past three grand prix (Singapore, Italy and Belgium). He currently holds a 60-point lead in the championship standings.
Mark Webber's 11th and most recent pole came in last year's Korean GP. He finished second to his Red Bull teammate Vettel. Webber will start Sunday's race with a 10-grid penalty. He was reprimanded by the FIA race stewards in Singapore for taking a ride back on Fernando Alonso's Ferrari after failing to complete the final lap due to engine failure. It was his third reprimand of the season, resulting in the grid penalty.
Round 15 in this year's F1 world championship is the Oct. 13 Japanese Grand Prix in Suzuka, Japan. Vettel won last year's race there.
