Few expected Mercedes GP drivers Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher to maintain their qualifying advantage — supplemented by the stil-controversial blown DRS that provides far less of a difference during races — for the duration of the Chinese Grand Prix. Yet Rosberg seized the lead at the start and was never threatened thereafter. He went on to take a comfortable victory, 20.6s clear of the McLarens. It was Rosberg’s first Formula One success after more than 100 appearances and the first for a Mercedes-Benz chassis since legendary Juan Manuel Fangio won the 1955 Italian GP at Monza.
It was a remarkable race. No time to write about it today, so I hope everyone watched live or has a replay set to record.
