Hamilton wins 1000th race

Lewis Hamilton said that he "redeemed" himself with a lightning start to win the 1,000th Formula One grand prix on Sunday in a blustery Shanghai.

Hamilton started from second on the grid but grabbed the lead from Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas on the first corner and romped to a victory which gives him the world championship lead.

The title-holder from Britain finished more than 6.5 seconds ahead of Bottas in the third Mercedes one-two in as many races this season, with Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel third.

Max Verstappen of Red Bull was fourth and Charles Leclerc in the second Ferrari was fifth.

Hamilton, for whom this was a sixth Chinese Grand Prix win and 75th overall, said that it was "a little bit of a struggle this weekend for me".

“The start was obviously great, which was really the decisive moment of the race. After that it was fairly straightforward."
