How sweet it is, Champagne and victory. McLaren’s Knight in Shanghai was Lewis Hamilton. McLaren has been tweaking it’s car’s each race and Hamilton was confident that his team had selected the right tyres for Shanghai. Having made one more pit stop then Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel. The win was thrilling as Hamilton overcame a pre-race mechanical drama and with his crew performing a ballet in the pit stop to perfection with rond de jambe at rapid speed against all the laws of gravity and with a quick succession giving him a fresh set of tyres. “It was one of the best races I have experienced,” said Hamilton. Red Bull’s Mark Webber, who started 18th was man and machine, grafted, with speed and skill charged to the front to finish 3rd behind his team mate Vettel, while the Knight of McLaren Jenson Button finished fourth. The win was a product of collaboration and the champagne flute’s will be overflowing at McLaren.
