Sunday’s Formula One Grand Prix in Shanghai China was off to a great start, with champion race leader, Lewis Hamilton on pole. Fresh off the starting line behind Lewis was Rosberg and Vettel. By lap 12, the top seven on the track were Hamilton, Rosberg, Vettel, Raikkonen, Massa, Grosjean and Verstappen.
Toro Rosso’s Max Verstappen, the youngest driver in Formula One, out drove the big bad Red Bulls, until lap 54 when he suffered a DNF in what appeared to be, gearbox failure. Unfortunately, the safety car was deployed. The race was finished under the safety car with a Mercedes 1-2, lead by Lewis Hamilton who won comfortably crossed the finish line first, Rosberg second, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen third and fourth respectively. Coming in fifth was Williams-Martini driver Felipe Massa, with teammate Valtteri Bottas close behind in sixth. A great surprise for the Lotus team when Romain Grosjean, came in seventh. The Sauber garage was quite jubilant when, both of their drivers finished in the top ten. In another star-studded podium interview, the great Olympian runner, Edwin Moses, conducted the interview with Hamilton, Vettel and Rosberg, just as Arnold Schwarzeneggar did at the Australian Grand Prix. The thorn in Mercedes side this season will be Ferrari, and the thorn in Ferrari’s side, will be Williams.
