With the new Formula 1 campaign now in full swing, it’s time for another season of NBC Sports’ original series “Off The Grid”.

Off The Grid hosts Will Buxton and Jason Swales are back, going behind-the-scenes in F1 and giving you a taste of the cities that the sport ventures to.

In the first episode of the year, we head to one of the biggest cities in the world: Shanghai.

The Chinese Grand Prix has become a firm fixture on the F1 calendar since it was first held in 2004, taking the sport to the world’s most populous country.

In this episode, Will and Jason catch up with championship leader Nico Rosberg and new Haas driver Romain Grosjean, as well as getting to grips with the tech behind an F1 steering wheel.

We also take a look inside the stunning Shanghai auto museum and get a tour of the world’s tallest media centre at the Shanghai International Circuit.

Off The Grid: Shanghai premieres on Friday June 10 at 3:30pm ET on NBCSN, following practice for the Canadian Grand Prix. You can also catch the re-air after qualifying from Montreal at 2:30pm ET on Saturday June 11.
