China saw Hamilton take the lead off the line from Bottas and go on to win a seemingly easy race for the current Champion. Ferrari didn’t have an answer and after all the hype there wasn’t a battle for lead at anytime during the 56 laps.
Leclerc won’t be happy after being told to let Vettel through and scuppering his race strategy, leaving the young Ferrari ace in P5 behind Verstappen by the finish.
It was a double disaster for McLaren after an incident at turn 1 where Kvyat hit not one, but both of the orange cars. It appeared to be a racing incident, but Kyvat took a penalty.
Albon was the star of the race for Fantasy GP – the Toro Rosso rookie started from the pit lane and finished in P10 with a massive 30points bonus for progressing 10 places from the start.
We saw 3 cars fail to finish – Hulkenberg, Kvyat and Norris and just 1 very brief safety car period. Gasly bagged the fastest lap on the final lap with a last minute pit stop for fresh, soft tyres. Good tactics from Red Bull.
