Starting from pole position, the fifth race of the season was a boon for Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg who wins his first race since last year in Brazil. Rosberg, drove a near perfect race and stayed out front for most of the race. After becoming frustrated with his dwindling chances of a drivers championship, Rosberg was close to giving up as he had to stand back and watch his teammate Lewis Hamilton, win race after race. Now, Rosberg feels as if he has the momentum heading into Monaco, his home race.
Throughout the race, Rosberg had a comfortable lead ahead of Hamilton who finished second, followed by, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel who was second for most of the race but finish, third. Tire degradation was an Achilles heel for Hamilton and some of the others as they fought to overtake one another while trying to take care if the tires. A pivotal part during the race that ate into Lewis Hamilton’s time was when he went in for his first pit stop. The stop was slow and delayed for reasons that were not clear. Hamilton still leads in points for the drivers championship with Rosberg and Vettel close enough to keep hope alive.
Valtteri Bottas with Williams-Martini racing continued to impress fans by finishing fourth and Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen, fifth. Bottas teammate Felipe Massa was sixth, Daniel Ricciardo seventh and Roman Grojean of Lotus, eighth. The was some great wheel-to-wheel racing on display during the last 3 laps when hometown driver Carlos Sainz Jr., battled with Toro Rosso teammate Max Verstappen for tenth position, then quickly got out in front of Russian driver, Daniil Kvyat, and took ninth. The Manor-Marussia team, was hanging in there with the big boys on the track, while second hometown hero Fernando Alonso, was force to retire due to brake failure, but almost ran over his pit crew when he overshot the garage. His teammate at McLaren- Honda Jenson Button, finished 16th
For the first time since the 2015 Formula One season started, the winner of last year’s trophy for the most pole positions, Nico Rosberg, made pole at the Formula One Grand Prix in Barcelona at Circuit de Catalunya in Spain. Rosberg was clearly happy, and remarked, "It's just important for the race because it's better to start first than second obviously. Psychologically, yeah, it's good. Feels great. I'm happy." Once again, the Mercedes AMG team has shown speed and reliability on the track. 2014 champion and the season leader, Lewis Hamilton, will start second.
Meanwhile, the comeback of Ferrari, lead by Sebastian Vettel will start third, Valtteri Bottas with Williams-Martini, fourth. Surprisingly, Toro Rosso driver, Carlos Sainz Jr., did not disappoint Spanish fans when he qualified fifth. Unfortunately, their Formula One hero Fernando Alonso could not get the McLaren-Honda into Q3 and Max Verstappen sixth Vettel’s Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen was seventh and Red Bull Daniil Kvyat was eighth.
The pressure will be on for Nico Rosberg with a mix of high and low speed corners, his teammate Lewis Hamilton, will be right up on his gearbox, with Sebastian Vettel, in search of another championship, seconds behind.

Unfortunately for the McLaren-Honda team, Fernando Alonso made a gallant effort but was held at 14th, and Jenson Button’s car appeared to have some electrical issues preventing him from making it into Q3.

World Champion Lewis Hamilton is in pole position for the third time, since the start of the season. Racing in the beautiful city of Shanghai, Mercedes driver, Lewis Hamilton, will lead the pack on Sunday, at the Formula One Grand Prix China. Hamilton’s teammate Nico Rosberg pushed his way into second, leaving the Ferrari drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen, third and fourth. Formula One teams, Mercedes AMG, Scuderia Ferrari, and Williams-Martini have started making moves on the track to build Championship Constructors points. Ferrari and Williams are poised to fight it out on the track, against the superiority of Mercedes. Not to be ignored are the Red Bulls Daniil Kvyat and Daniel Ricciard, or Sauber, whose drivers Felipe Nasr and Marcus Ericcson made it into the top ten at qualifying.
The Sahara Force India team is at the bottom of the heap, and may remain there until their upgraded packages arrive, mid season. Dropping off the pace at qualifying was McLaren. When Fernando Alonso was asked about the performance of the McLaren Honda, he relied, “I enjoyed the session. All the updates we brought here seem to be working as we’d expected, and they’ve put us closer to the mid-pack. It’s very encouraging to see that we’re moving firmly in the right direction – it’s a question of time as to when we’ll become competitive. “Obviously, we began the season from a lower starting point than some of the other teams, so it’s been easier for us to make quick improvements, but the team is so focused and determined to improve – that’s very impressive."
