F1 Hype: Chinese Grand Prix (Quick Result)

This year the Chinese Grand Prix was many things, except boring!  I really hope that if you missed it you manage to find a re-broadcast somewhere because there was so much action, surprises, passing, and fast laps that I could not begin to tell you about it all in words that would make sense!  Instead I will just give you the biggest news (warning: spoiler alert).  Nico Rosberg stunned the racing world when he captured his first ever grand prix pole position for Mercedes GP during Saturday qualifying!  This was the first time in a few years that a car not belonging to McLaren, Scuderia Ferrari, or Red Bull racing earned a pole position.  Heavy stuff indeed!

Then, just to prove that his qualifying achievement wasn’t a fluke, Nico won the race from pole!  Yes, you read correctly, Nico Rosberg earned his first Formula One victory after 111 starts!  Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton captured 2nd and 3rd spots respectively making the Chinese Grand Prix podium an all-Mercedes affair.
