Hamilton secures another F1 victory
20 Apr 2014 10:10
Lewis Hamilton chalked up three successive victories for the first time in his Formula One career with a lights-to-flag cruise in China.
The race at the Shanghai International Circuit undoubtedly lacked the drama that unfolded two weeks ago in Bahrain, but that will not worry Hamilton who is currently in the form of his F1 life.
With the best car on the grid beneath him as Mercedes have built a potential championship-winner, Hamilton has not put a wheel out of place since an unfortunate early retirement in the season-opening race in Australia.
That, however, has proven costly for although Hamilton has gone on to to take the chequered flag in Malaysia, Bahrain and now China, three times he has had team-mate Nico Rosberg claim second place.
It means Rosberg, winner in Australia, still has a four-point cushion over Hamilton in the drivers' standings as F1 now takes a mini-break before heading back to its European heartland early next month.
Come the conclusion, Hamilton finished 18.6secs clear of Rosberg, with Ferrari's Fernando Alonso third on Marco Mattiacci's debut as team principal.
