    Late entry, back in the hotel. I enjoyed the race that appeared initially to be a Vettel walk away. There's so much one doesn't hear with all the noise on track. It was an exciting beginning, then boring but impressive run by Ferrari. The SC and RB pit strategy made for a surprising and fun race. I was thinking, where did Rici come from? What happened to Vettel? Why is Max gaining? Both RB's were adding to the mix as it were. I knew Vettel was PO'd with Max's dive. All in all I would have lost a lot of money on this race. Hammy looked helpless and un-Champion-like. RB and Ricci looked hopeful and fun to watch...an added excitement...for a change. Vettel looked so strong in the beginning but I was confused as to why he dropped back so much so that Alonso could pass... Finally, Chinese fans love Ferrari. The roar I heard when Vettel or Kimi went by was noticeable. Even though Kimi came in 3rd he got more vocals than Ricci .

    Well deserved TEAM victory for Ricci.

    Possibly the best overall race in the last 4 years or so.

    Max will be Max ,i doubt he will change in the near future,it's either hero or zero.

    Lewis had one of his rubbish weekends,again.

    In the past Lewis said he knew what was going down by looking at the 'Big Screens' around the track.

    It must be immensely satisfying for Ricci to win this one...Not only that it did not look like it after his engine failure but also because RB sets his hopes into Max but it was him to get the win when the opportunity arise. A bit like in 2014 when he was always around when Mercedes struggled.

    One thing I read on line today, maybe it was PlanetF1, said that the Mercedes pit stops were in reaction to Red Bull's first pit stop. Does that makes sense? RB was on softer tires, so of course they were going to pit earlier.

    I definitely think Ferrari needs to be more active and less reactive. Ferrari will have to keep the development up. Their current development clearly shows they doing it correctly. I mean Seb said car was a handful and not fully balance from Australia GP to China Qualifying were it felt perfect for him. They need to keep that up if they hope to win.

    Yea there were radio transmissions wondering why the safety car hadn't been deployed after guys ran through the mess on the track. They waited a long time. Even the announcers said something about don't they need to clean that up?

    Things happen though and there is a human element. It's all a apart of racing.
