Congratulations to Lewis Hamilton for his tremendous victory at the Chinese Grand Prix this morning!
The McLaren teams strategy of three stops, gave Hamilton the opportunity to use his fresh soft tyres saved during qualifying and saw him speed from third place on the grid to first on the podium.
Delighted Hamilton said: “I think today the strategy that we came up with going in to qualifying definitely helped. Our new option tyres seemed to last a bit longer than the guys in front of us.
“It was quite a few things that came together. The pitstops were fantastic, the guys were pushing to improve, the car felt great.”
He added: “I was trying to nurse my tyres and trying to pick up the pace. The guys in front of me had to do a lot of overtaking. Thumbs up to the guys back at factory, who put their heart into making the car what it is on the GP weekend. It feels amazing.”
