Formula 1 2014: GP of China Race Results – FINAL

2014 Chinese Grand Prix - Race Results

Mercedes debuted a new nose design for their 2014 Formula 1 contender (below) at this morning’s Shanghai GP of China, then promptly showed the world that they probably didn’t need it- so dominant was the performance of 2008 World Champion Lewis Hamilton. The Ham reminded us all that he was a natural star for Easter Sunday, leading every lap and never really coming under any pressure at all.

MERCEDES NOSE JOB

Further back, Fernando Alonso out-drove his struggling Ferrari to a third-place finish, though he was dogged to the end by a charging Daniel Ricciardo. Ricciardo, by the way, not only came in 4th- but came in 4th ahead of a petulant and s***ty Sebastian Vettel, who finished 19 seconds behind his young teammate after declaring it “tough luck” that Ricciardo had ended up behind him after a round of pit stops. Vettel is douche-nozzle, in other words, and it was a rare (albeit, somewhat familiar) joy to see him take some medicine from a plucky Australian driver.

All too rare, in fact. Here’s hoping we see some more of that throughout the 2014 season. Without further ado, however, these race results will tell you how the 2014 Shanghai GP of China played out for the rest of the F1 grid. Enjoy!
