GPI 2017 Chinese Grand Prix - Page 2

LEWIS VS SEBASTIAN It’s game on! Lewis Hamilton versus Sebastian Vettel, Mercedes versus Ferrari and after two rounds it’s one-one, with 18 to go! Formula 1 fans have the prospect of a salubrious contest between the sport’s two best teams and arguably two of the best drivers on the grid. Circumstances denied us a Hamilton-Vettel wheel-to-wheel battle in China, but one senses that a toe-to-toe confrontation or two are just around the corner. Whatever the case the pair are tied on points and are relishing the battle and anticipating a great deal more drama in forthcoming races. Shanghai was not only about them, as teenage prodigy Max Verstappen again delivered a stupendous drive, earning himself Driver of the Day for his performance packed with audacity, cunning and sheer bravado. It was not such a good weekend for Kimi Raikkonen or fellow Finn Valtteri Bottas. The Mercedes driver made a rookie mistake, while the Ferrari veteran seems to have lost it altogether and his bosses were hardly impressed... We have all this, plus much more, well covered in this Chinese Grand Prix edition. Enjoy!
