Focus on. Can Red Bull assert itself?

But their cars clipped each other and the Dutchman, well known for taking risks and pushing the envelope, wound up with a punctured tire and was forced to retire.

In all, Alonso would lead four separate times for a total of 31 laps.

Meanwhile Bottas, who finished second to Vettel, has been accused by the BBC's former F1 driver and expert Jolyon Palmer of lacking the bottle to have grabbed the race win that should have been his.

Vettel has driven two stellar races to start the new season but his victories have both come at races Mercedes appeared to squander. In 11 races at the Shanghai circuit, he's won five times - three of the last four races, including last year - and has claimed the pole six times.

The sport's race director, Charlie Whiting, has confirmed F1's governing body are looking into recent issues with loose or incorrectly-fitted wheels after McLaren in pre-season and then Haas and Ferrari respectively at the season's opening two rounds ran into stoppages. Hamilton clocked up win No. 2 in 2011.

"I generally do my talking on the track, but after this incident I didn't", Hamilton told reporters at the Chinese Grand Prix.

As the Formula One circus moves from the desert to the Far East, Hamilton admitted that he had forgotten the cameras were there, but said that it was good for sportspeople to show their emotions. "On Thursdays we don't do any football, we don't think about the next game, we just go to the Indoor nets and play cricket".

In need of points?

"I don't understand why everybody is on top of the topic because those things happen in racing".

"They are going to be hard to beat", said the 2017 world champion. There is a sense that Hamilton too should be able to overtake his fierce rival before the season is out. "There are so many things that keep the ball afloat", Hamilton said. In Australia it misjudged Lewis Hamilton's advantage during a Virtual Safety Car period, while a timid strategy, mixed with a sublime defensive drive from Vettel, saw the world champions fall short in Bahrain.

Cool temperatures are expected over the grand prix weekend but there's a strong chance we'll see a rain-interrupted Friday practice in Shanghai with light rain expected throughout the day. Ferrari was the last to remove the branding, clinging to their Marlboro partnership for as long as possible, even if the partnership just remained in the background.

Vettel's perfect start to the season still hasn't been enough for bookmakers to install him as favourite in China with Hamilton at 10/11 to take a sixth win in Shanghai. The Week Pass is obviously the best value for F1 fanatics, especially if you're planning to watch literally everything.
