Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton make a great start at the Chinese GP, with Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel falling back from pole position. Despite the initial setback, it still seemed as though Vettel would be able to take his third win of the year, as he led a good portion of the race.

However, on a two-stop strategy, Vettel found himself struggling on his tyres during the last few laps, and Lewis Hamilton - on a three-stop - was able to pass him for the win.

Afterwards, Hamilton said: "Looking back at these three flyaways, it still feels absolutely amazing to have a car beneath us that can compete. We've still got some way to go to close the gap to the Red Bulls, but we had the better strategy and were able to execute it really well. The team will keep on pushing as hard as ever as we head into the European season."
