Shanghai has one of the longest straights in the 21-race championship and should be ideal for Ferrari's searing pace, with reliability the main concern for the Italian marque. Indeed 2016 had a whopping 161 overtakes during a chaotic race while last year's grand prix incorporated Daniel Ricciardo's charge from sixth to first in the space of 10 laps. If Mercedes are dominant here then they will really have opened up a gap between themselves and the other teams.
"We saw the second race already, it's so competitive now, Ferrari's super-strong", said the Finn.

"I hope that we don't have to rely on reliability, and I hope we have a much closer race", said Hamilton.
"I already feel quite a lot more comfortable in the vehicle compared to where I was in Australia". Who will take the pole position for this historic race, and who will win it? We are still learning how to maximise the current aero package, but it feels as though we are moving in the right direction. I think on the feedback also out of the auto Seb is a pretty good benchmark on that and I still have a lot of work to do. It's Thursday, so it must be track walk time!
"But overall I am happy how I improved from the first to the second weekend but there is definitely still a lot to improve".
"The challenge we are facing doesn't daunt us, it's uplifting", he added. "When I think of China, I think of turn one".
They are by no means a certainty to challenge at the front, but if the race does become fragmented, they are in a good position to pounce and a 13/1 shot for Red Bull to provide the victor looks like a valuable punt - and a clever hedge against Hamilton's chances. He was watching so I grew up watching with him. "It was the prize after winning a karting race in Miami organised by Juan Pablo Montoya". ESPN2 is set to air this race, the Chinese Grand Prix, live from Shanghai International Circuit. It's easy to argue there have only been 974 races since the first at Silverstone in 1950, and that means we're still more than a season away from the actual 1000th race.
