After a marathon journey of eighteen hours with a stopover in Dubai, the world championship leader landed at Pudong airport early in the morning, Spanish time.
The reception could not be more crowded and warm, as several hundreds of Chinese fans waited as each season to Fernando in the same gate with Spanish flags, Asturian and Ferrari. Fernando took care of all his fans and spent a good time shaking hands and signing autographs as you can see in this video
Back at the hotel, Fernando has dedicated the evening to light training in the gym with his trainer to tone the muscles after the long journey. The unsettled weather has welcomed Fernando in the city of skyscrapers, with a temperature between 18/11degrees. The forecasts are not very favorable for the next few days and it looks like the rain will be present at any time during the three days of Grand Prix.
Fernando arrives in China as a world championship leader after his sensational victory at Sepang to contest a Grand Prix in which it already knows how to win. He did it in 2005 with Renault. Last season, Fernando finished in seventh position.
