The 2013 Chinese Grand Prix was the third race of the 2013 Formula One Season. It was held over the weekend of April 12–14th 2013 at the Shanghai International Circuit in the Jaiding District of Shanghai, China. It was the tenth running of the Chinese Grand Prix, all of which have been held at the Shanghai circuit.

The event marked Fernando Alonso's 200th Grand Prix start, and after qualifying in third place, the Spaniard won the race by a clear ten seconds over Kimi Räikkönen, whose nosecone and front wing were damaged in a collision with Sergio Pérez. Polesitter Lewis Hamilton managed to finish third, fending off a late charge by Sebastian Vettel.


Background

After the Malaysian round of the championship, Sebastian Vettel took the lead from Kimi Räikkönen to put his at 9 points. Mark Webber was third after Malayasia after he finished 2nd in the race. But it wasn't without it hiccups as Mark Webber said that we would round out the season at Red Bull, even though for the mishap.
