A lot of good advice here. I was going to suggest something similar to Pugshot but I was thinking more of a mid corner shot so you can see the tyres stressed under load. If you get your angles right you should be able to get them slowing through the corner and pan with them through it.
The tickets allow you access to any area on the Friday which is always the best shooting day anyway - 2 x 90min sessions and a lot less people to worry about. That is also when you'll see some odd things like fluoro paint being put on the wings to test aero. Looking at the track map I think I would shoot one session from Grandstand B and the other session from Grass Stand J as there are plenty of angles you can cover within each session. http://www.smartshanghai.com/smartticket/shanghai-f1
. That map gives you a general idea of the views from each stand but unfortunately it doesn't allow you to pan through the whole viewing angle like the Monza and others do
