China Grand Prix Drivers & Odds

Lewis Hamilton is the most successful driver at the Chinese GP with five wins. Mercedes have five victories at the Shanghai International Circuit, and have won four of the last five Chinese GPs.

It looks to be a close fight between Mercedes and Ferrari this weekend. The length of the pit straight should work in Ferrari’s favour in a straight line, however, there are many overtaking opportunities, especially into the never-ending turn one, which Hamilton will exploit.
