2014 Chinese GP: Formula One F1 Race Results - Hamilton, Mercedes Win!


By Mike Sulka

Mercedes Formula One F1 driver Lewis Hamilton scored an easy 20-second win at the 2014 Chinese Grand Prix. For Hamilton, it it his third win of the 2014 season and 25th victory (breaking a tie with Juan Manuel Fangio) of his Formula One F1 career - 57th career podium. It was also Hamilton's third win at the Shanghai International Circuit.

For Mercedes, it was the team's fourth victory of the year and fourth straight triumph. The team also claimed their third one-two of the season. The victory marked the team's 17th all-time as a constructor.

Finishing second was Nico Rosberg and his No. 6 who claimed his fourth podium of the year, and 15th of his career. Rosberg started on the dirty side of the track in fourth, had a dreadful start, fell back to 7th, but worked his way back up through the grid despite the adversity. Rosberg continues to lead the 2014 Formula One F1 drivers points standings by four points over Hamilton.

In third, Fernando Alonso and his No. 14 just didn't have enough car to hold on to second after a solid start to his race. For Alonso, it is his first podium of 2014, and 96th career podium - third on the all-time list behind Alain Prost (106).

Daniel Ricciardo and his No. 3 Red Bull would finish fourth with Sebastian Vettel and his No. 1 Red Bull rounding out the top five.

The race began with a clear advantage for the drivers on the clean side of the track with Fernando Alonso, and Sebastian Vettel gaining the most - second and third respectively. However, Vettel would lose positions throughout the race to ultimately finish in fifth.

Romain Grosjean's (Lotus) race ended early. He had a problem with fourth gear with is believed to have led to his off-track excusion and subsequent retirement.

Adrian Sutil (Sauber) retired early with power issues.

Next up, the Formula One F1 series will race at the 2014 Spanish Grand Prix in three weeks.
