With the championship wrapped up, it's left to the final four races of the year to provide their own individual entertainment - starting with Korea. New to the calendar in 2010, the Korean Grand Prix weekend was an interesting one, filled with safety cars and plenty of rain. The circuit was still being scrambled together, and there were tons of unknowns for the teams.

This year, it will be another new prospect - hopefully a finished circuit, and some new track conditions to get used to. We've got the supersoft and soft compounds in action today, and the teams are likely to be testing bits and pieces for 2012 already.
