The Chinese GP started out wet, but as soon as the Safety Car disappeared things got interesting. Red Bull's maiden win just topped off an excellent race.

The Race

After eight laps behind the Safety Car, the action got underway, and it was good to see a lot of scraps for position out on track. Unfortunately, this also meant a lot of spinning, incidents, and nose changes, but that all adds up to make a great event.

Team by Team

McLaren seem buoyed by their slight improvements, whilst Toyota can't wait to put this race behind them. Red Bull are obviously over the moon, and Brawn GP can't hide their disappointment, despite still finishing on the podium.
