In Shanghai, Fairmont Peace Hotel has seen decades of starlets, tycoons and political big wigs walk through its doors, and their guest list for the Grand Prix is sure to be filled with celebrities of every stripe. The hotel’s Formula 1 Grand Prix Offer is valid April 10-18, 2012 for the UBS Chinese Grand Prix, which runs on the architecturally stunning Shanghai International Circuit. According to the architects, the track is shaped like the Chinese character 'shang', which stands for 'high' or 'above'.

Perhaps the most prestigious event on the F1 circuit, the Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco is legendary. The famed Fairmont Hairpin turn is an action packed spot on the circuit, and Fairmont Monte Carlo hovers right above it.

Montreal’s Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth is the official caterer to the VIP and corporate reception lounges overlooking the race track at the Grand Prix du Canada, one of the series’ favorite stop for the drivers.

Abu Dhabi debuted their F1 race in 2009 with the Yas Marina track – which brings top speeds of 320 km/h – and it became the first F1 twilight race, as the track uses floodlights to transition seamlessly from day to night.
