025Lewis Hamilton added another trophy to his collection after racing to victory in the Chinese Grand Prix. This was his third consecutive win for the first time in his formula 1 career. His team-mate Nico Rosberg claimed second, with Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso joining them on the podium. Hamilton was full of praise for the car and the team behind him. “I just can’t believe how amazing the car is and how hard everyone’s worked,” he said on the podium. “After the start it was just really racing myself. I’m really happy Nico is up here with us. Great points for the team.”

The track is another new Tilke design, which some F1 fans say isn’t very exciting. Proof of this could be shown by nobody even bothering Hamilton from start to finish. When it was completed in 2004, it was the most expensive Formula One circuit facility, costing $240 million. The track features one of the trickiest corners combinations on the Formula One calendar. Turn 1 and 2 are a very demanding 270 degree, right-handed corner combination. The victory was the 25th of Hamilton’s career, pulling him level with former world champion Niki Lauda and the late Jim Clark in the all-time list of winners. In the championship table, Rosberg, the winner of the season-opener in Australia, now has 79 points after four races, with Hamilton on 75 and Alonso third on 41. One of the highlights of the race involved Vettel, Red Bull’s four times world champion was asked to move aside for his faster Australian team mate for the second race in a row. The teams and drivers come back to Europe with the Spanish grand prix in a few weeks time.
