Sebastian Vettel laps the Korean F1 circuit – Click above to watch video after the jump

Karun Chandhok was the first driver to lap the track that will be used for this month's Korean Grand Prix. Now Sebastian Vettel has gotten his turn. On this go-round, it sounds like the track is still so slippery that revs were a bigger issue than anything else.

With the same camera angle as Chandhok's run, there isn't much more to see. The track is further along than a month ago, but it's still not going to be pretty for the folks who make the journey into the South Korean bush to watch it live. While we figure out how to say "cat fight" and "ghost town" in Korean, you can entertain yourselves with the video after the jump.

      Kerbs aren't huge. That's just a testament to how much more tarmac they've layed down since this practice run with Chandhok.

      Some of the kerbs are actually divots, and the HRT doesn't respond to a change in attitude. Yamamoto spun out as a result and needed a new front wing.

      Autblog,

      WORST

      FAIL

      EVER.

      This is not Sebastian.

      This is not "virtual".

      *Sigh*

      Yeah, it looks really different. I was watching the qualifying yesterday and it looks like a decent track; I think those first couple of corners combined with the kilometer long straight will make the opening laps (and laps following the safety car) very interesting...

      And go Webber!!

      yeah this is Karun's run not Vettel's. Nice Try Autoblog...

      Autoblog is really getting lazy with the relevancy of their content. Step it up guys. Qualifying was yesterday, there are tons of on-board lap vids out there today, and they are amazing. Pretty sad that we can get information faster on a TV than on the internet.

        Agreed, completely.

        With stealing content from jalopnik or just plain getting things wrong, Autoblog takes the cake.

      F1 gets another squirt n' stop / flat GP circuit laid out by TV producers.......when's Spa come around again? Want'a make certain I don't miss the F1 season in '11 -- it was good in '10 (if all you watched is Spa) Bruce

        You clearly do not watch F1.

        Fail.

      The track has come along way than that video. Thats not the footage from todays qualifying.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Also the FIA would never allow a race to take place on that track so thats a good indicator to knowing its the wrong one.
        • 4 Years Ago
        On Red Bull's website it says its from October 19, 2010?
      • 4 Years Ago
      It lacks any of Vettel's smoke and flames.
