The 2014 Chinese Grand Prix is the fourth race of the 2014 Formula One Season. It will be held over the weekend of April 18–20th 2013 at the Shanghai International Circuit in the Jiading District of Shanghai, China. It is the eleventh running of the Chinese Grand Prix, all of which have been held at the Shanghai circuit.


BackgroundEdit

Nico Rosberg and his Mercedes team lead the Drivers' and Constructors' Championships going into the Chinese Grand Prix. Rosberg's lead over Lewis Hamilton is 11 points, while Mercedes have more than twice the points of their nearest rivals, Force India - a lead of 67 points.

Pastor Maldonado will take a five-place grid drop for this race as a result of an avoidable accident in Bahrain in which Esteban Gutiérrez' car was sent somersaulting across the track. The incident also earned the Lotus driver three penalty points on his Super License.

*Note: Race initially scheduled for 56 laps. However, the chequered flag was mistakenly shown to Lewis Hamilton at the end of the 55th lap. Results were therefore taken as of the end of Lap 54, in line with Article 43.2 of the FIA Sporting Regulations:

“Should for any reason the end-of-race signal be given before the leading car completes the scheduled number of laps, or the prescribed time has been completed, the race will be deemed to have finished when the leading car last crossed the line before the signal was given.”

MilestonesEdit

  • Lewis Hamilton: 34th pole, stands alone as the fourth-most pole positions.
  • Lewis Hamilton: 25th win, ties Niki Lauda and Jim Clark, equal best by a British driver.
  • Lewis Hamilton: Third consecutive victory.
  • Lewis Hamilton: Lead his 1,500th lap (1,506 laps at the end of the race).
  • Mercedes: 100th consecutive points score for Mercedes-engined cars.
