Lewis Hamilton finished 3rd in China

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

Another good race for Lewis Hamilton. Lewis qualified 2nd in China but due to the gearbox change he received an 5-place grid place penalty resulting him starting from 7th position.

It was a good race and Lewis managed to get back up into 3rd position after Jenson Button in 2nd and first time winner Nico Rosberg.

Lewis Hamilton’s comments after the race:

I had a great race! And, although neither Jenson nor I was sadly able to win, I’m really happy that Nico took his first win today, but I’m also really pleased for the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team: both Jenson and I were able to get back on the podium and score some more good points.

It was a tough race, though: I’d love to have been able to challenge Nico, and I think maybe I’d have been able to if I’d started on the front row, but we still managed to move forwards from the start I had a lot of fun overtaking people too. I reckon I got everything out of the car that I possibly could.
