2014 Chinese Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Mercedes, Shanghai International Circuit, 2014The weekend’s best weather awaited Formula One on Sunday. Lewis Hamilton took a dominant win, while Ferrari got their first podium finish of 2014.

Here’s how it unfolded on Twitter.

Build-up

Williams mechanics in preparations. It didn’t help, however, as a disastrous pit stop ruined Felipe Massa’s race.

Race

The fourth race of the season got underway with two tangles in the first metres.

A promising weekend for Romain Grosjean and Lotus came to a disappointing end with a gearbox failure.

His teammate Pastor Maldonado fought Esteban Gutierrez, with a better outcome than a fortnight ago.

After the chequered flag

Hamilton may have three wins to Rosberg’s one, but it’s the latter who leads the championship.

Kimi Raikkonen finished a disappointing weekend in eight position, 53 seconds behind his teammate.

Fernando Alonso dedicated his third place finish to Stefano Domenicali, who resigned from Ferrari team principal role earlier in the week.

    What does Mark Gallagher mean with the ’3 seconds’.

    I also very much disagree with him that a win should be more points. 25 is 139% of P2. I think that is plenty. To much even, MotoGP works with 125% and in my own racing league we also use the MotoGP system to keep the championship tighter for longer. Also in MotoGP more drivers get points.

  2. 3 second places
