Lewis Hamilton took pole position for Mercedes in Shanghai. Why not the team had been working hard all week. Not to mention that he was teamed up with another Brit who has been making news lately David Bowie in this video below and the song ‘China Girl’.
While Nico Rosberg led a Mercedes one-two in the first practice session for the Chinese Grand Prix today no one was going to beat Lewis Hamilton.
“I’m ecstatic,” triumphed an elated Hamilton who is on the verge of emerging as a serious contender for this year’s title. “The lap was great and the team have performed well all weekend.”
Hamilton’s third pole in Shanghai – and third successive defeat of new Mercedes team-mate Rosberg – will see him start Sunday’s race alongside Kimi Raikkonen on the front row just ahead of Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso.
An intriguing tactical battle awaits in Sunday’s race with Hamilton and Mercedes boasting a slight speed advantage from Alonso and Massa, Raikkonen the potentially critical capacity to run for longer without stopping, and both Red Bulls operating from an altogether different tactical perspective.
“The two closest guys [Raikkonen and Alonso] will be the biggest challenge,” predicted Hamilton to (Spy Daniela). “The Ferrari is massively quick on the first lap and so is Kimi. And Kimi is particularly very strong with looking after the option tyres so it’s going to be very hard to keep them behind.
This could be a good sign for the race tomorrow. Meet the sexy Amy Tan model who helped out modeling for this video thanks to our ‘Spy Girl’ (Spy Daniela) who is traveling around the world keep an eye on things for MyNameIsKhan as we head into her turf Monaco in May.
