Following Sebastian Vettel’s shock victory for Ferrari at the Malaysian Grand Prix two weeks ago, the Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg are hoping to strike back in China this weekend and resume normal service.

The Silver Arrows went a long way to doing that in FP1 on Friday morning at the Shanghai International Circuit by finishing first and second, 1.1 seconds clear of Vettel in third place, and will be hoping to continue this form in the second practice session later today.

Hamilton’s memories of racing in China are bittersweet. Although he has won in Shanghai on three occasions, it was also the site of a retirement in 2007 that eventually cost him the world championship in his rookie year. However, he will be hoping to secure a fourth Chinese Grand Prix victory on Sunday and extend his lead at the top of the drivers’ championship.

His biggest challenge is likely to come from within Mercedes in the shape of teammate Nico Rosberg. The German driver has won just once since the German Grand Prix last July, and appears to have little answer to Hamilton’s pace at the moment. A third defeat in the opening three races of 2015 would put yet another dent in Rosberg’s hopes of a championship.

The Chinese Grand Prix promises to be another entertaining and enthralling event, so be sure to join us for all of our live coverage across the course of the weekend.
