Yesterday’s race will probably be one of the best races this season. At the start of the race Lewis Hamilton was on Pole position. Pole position is when you get the first spot on the grid, which gives you a higher chance of winning. You can earn it by having the fastest time in Qualifying. Next to Hamilton was Sebastian Vettel, his teammate Kimi Raikkonen qualified 11th. On the third spot was Nico Rosberg Followed by Daniel Riccardo.
At the start of the race, Nico Rosberg made a better start than Vettel, so Vettel squeezed him to the side of the road to pass him. Then on lap 4, the safety car came out after debris being on the track. The next major event was when on lap 17 when Marcus Erricson spun and ended up in the gravel trap. The gravel trap is a surface that is designed to stop the cars from high speeds. But that also means the end of their race.
Meanwhile most of the cars wen’t into the pits. But not Vettel. I really wanted him to win this race. So I was shouting ” Vettel why aren’t you going into the pits!” But that was probably the strategy that won him the race. He took very good care of the tires and could stay ahead of the two rival Mercedes. Vettel was the first to cross the checkered flag! I am hoping to see a great race in China and hopefully it will be close. Bye!
