Lewis Hamilton crossed the line ahead of his team-mate Nico Rosberg to win the 2015 Chinese Grand Prix. Sebastian Vettel was third for Ferrari.

Hamilton was pleased with the victory, which gave him his second win of the season.

I’m really happy. It was a great race and really positive to have a clean weekend throughout every session. The team did a great job. Going into today we expected it to be close with Ferrari as they had been good on the tyres on their long runs. The goal was to run my own race and manage the tyres as best I could; I was driving as hard as I could within the constraints of the tyres and just trying to stretch out the Option stints for as long as possible.
