2018 Chinese GP: Pirelli Formula One F1 Race Recap

2018 Chinese GP: Pirelli Formula One F1 Race Recap


– Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo won the Chinese Grand Prix from
sixth on the grid, having started on the ultrasoft tyre and making two pit stops. His
second stop was made under a safety car, enabling him to re-start with new soft tyres
and gain an advantage over those one-stopping on a different strategy. His Red Bull
team mate Max Verstappen adopted a similar strategy, with both cars double-stacking in
the pits.
Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas in second adopted a completely different strategy, similar
to his team mate Lewis Hamilton and both Ferrari drivers: starting on the soft and
making just one stop to medium. Despite this wide range of tactics with many drivers
using all three compounds, there was a very tight battle between the frontrunners –
where managing the tyres was paramount – all the way to the finish.
MARIO ISOLA - HEAD OF CAR RACING
“After Bahrain, we enjoyed another race where some different thinking on tyre strategy
among the leading competitors led to a very exciting conclusion, with many different
tactics in play. Track temperatures today were around 20 degrees higher than they had
been over the previous couple of days, which meant that the teams were facing a few
unknown factors heading into the race, not having run in these temperatures here
before. Another factor that influenced tyre strategy and ultimately the race victory was a
lengthy safety car period, allowing both Red Bulls to change tyres at an advantageous
moment, while reducing wear and degradation for everyone else who stayed out. In
total, six drivers, including the race winner, used all three compounds.”
