China 2011 - Race result // Hamilton snatches victory from polesitter Sebastian Vettel

Published by Christine Blachford

Sebastian Vettel started from pole position, and it seemed unlikely that anyone could break his winning streak. His teammate started way down, and although there was a brief stint with Nico Rosberg leading, it looked like it was going Vettel's way. Until just a few laps at the end, that is, when Lewis Hamilton came speeding by and took a great victory for McLaren.
