Racing fans can watch the Chinese Grand Prix live online and see if Lewis Hamilton can follow up his record-setting pole victory with a win in the race.
Hamilton broke the record for most poles won by a British driver in Formula 1, his 34th, as he set himself up in the prime position in the race. He bested Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo by 0.6 seconds, while Hamilton’s Mercedes teammate Sebastian Vettel qualified third.
The win came during a rainy Saturday at the track in Shanghai, though Hamilton said he was able to handle it.
“It’s so slippery out there, trying to find the grip, obviously not making mistakes on your lap, and really putting it together, especially when you have these guys pushing you,” Hamilton said. “It was a tough session.”
The Chinese Grand Prix begins Sunday at 2:30 am EDT (7:30 am GMT).
Fans who watch the Chinese Grand Prix live online will see if Hamilton can overcome the problems that plagued him on Friday. He was limited to only nine laps in the morning after being struck with suspension troubles.
“Yesterday was not a good day for me,” he said on Saturday. “It’s kind of strange because we made all those changes overnight and then today’s been wet so I have no idea if it’s (heading) in the right direction.”
Hamilton’s teammate, Nico Rosberg, will also be looking forward to the Chinese Grand Prix and the chance to hold his slim lead in the driver’s championship.
“I was the quicker one in Bahrain, didn’t make it work, but I have the momentum of the pace for race speed and I expect to have that again tomorrow,” Rosberg said.
There are many others in contention for the Chinese Grand Prix, including last year’s winner Fernando Alonso, who was the fastest during practice on Friday morning. He qualified fifth for Ferari.
