Lewis Hamilton started on pole position for the Chinese GP in Shanghai, and here’s how the race panned out…
The 30-year-old was set to extend his lead in the Formula One world championship in Shanghai, and was out to claim his 35th grand prix career victory.
Hamilton was in commanding form, and showed very few signs of nothing other than a victory for Mercedes throughout the race.
An earlier incident from the impressive Max Verstappen, in which the engine of his Toro Rosso failed, caused the rear wheels to lock, and saw the safety car out on the track, with the Chinese marshals making embarrassing work in their attempts to move the Toro Rosso.
The race ended in a rolling finish to victory for Hamilton.
Hamilton pipped teammate Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel to clinch his fourth Shanghai win and his second of the GP.
This was a record victory for the 30-year-old, as he sealed his 10th podium finish in a row, which is the longest run of his stunning career so far.
His second victory in the third race sees Hamilton top the Championship standings on 68 points, followed by Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari with 55 points, and team-mate Rosberg on 51 points.
As it stands Mercedes are top with 119 points after three rounds, with Ferrari on 79, and Williams on 48.
