Grand Prix of China To 2016: race Results

Salida del GP de China 2016Sunday in the GP China 2016 has left us an interesting race. With a lot of movement and some surprises, some pleasant and others not so much. What has not been a surprise is the superiority shown by Mercedes, with Nico Rosberg coming out of the pole and has not given respite to his rivals for what they achieved. The German has managed a solid victory by a more consecutive and indicating that this might be his year. Rosberg gets more leader with the points earned in this race with so many different strategies and battles so strange and abundant.

But behind Rosberg has not missed the excitement and the friction in the race. Let Me down to see the McLaren-Honda so bad, which yesterday were outside of Q3 because of the red flag which starred Nico Hülkenberg to get out to the track with a wheel badly tightened. They were very confident that they could have been comfortably in the Top10 for the first time today and have had a good career. But from the beginning all of you are buckled and today they have not succeeded in their expectations of rate with the sets of tyres that had been saved and your strategy.

Both Ferrari touching at the output of the GP of China. Capture from the camera onboard of Vettel.

A Safety Car has ruined the careers of some and has improved the situation of others as always seems to happen. This safety car came out for the prick (for the pieces of the Ferrari) Daniel Ricciardo on his 4th turn when I went first because it was past at the start to Rosberg. But good race from Ricciardo broke with this prick that forced him to enter to change it, while removing the chunks in the track is maintained the safety car rolling. But his partner took advantage of this to finally see him on the podium.

Kimi Räikkonen has not been able to almost get into the area of points in a large part of the race and should be just in the output have crashed both Ferrari leaving the of Kimi in the last square by the breaking of his wing. But this is not all, the Finnish tried to force Nasr to move around and destroyed the front wing of Hamilton, you remember that yesterday he went out last due to a failure in the MGU-H which has been forced to replace the engine this weekend. They had already changed the gearbox of the british which earned him the 5th position of penalty that were not met by this problem that he was not disputing the classification.

Kvyat and Vettel have also been the protagonists, the Red Bull is not allowed to pass Vettel and remained plantándole face, something that the German has recriminat to the end of the race and have discussed when they were going to get on the podium. Something that has not left very well off Vettel, who was overtaken by Kvyat at the start, but Vettel has blamed his crash with Kimi and calling her a “crazy”. Daniil answered him in German “This are racing, we are the two on the podium, enjoy. [ … ] What the output as a torpedo? For me it has been a good start, I saw a hole and went for it. Are the movements that will bring you to the podium, he is and I also.”.

In terms of the Spanish representatives, noting that Carlos Sainz Jr. has been able to finish in the points, but Alonso has not been able to. The McLaren came out with a tire harder so that while the front stopped in the first 5 laps and lost 25s more traffic, they could stretch a bit more, but the Safety Car destroyed this strategy. I hope that the next race will also be so interesting and that we can enjoy another good GP. Remember that the next appointment will be in Sochi, just before the GP of Spain, where almost all teams will incorporate some major improvements and you could start a “new” championship.
