Lewis Hamilton – 10 He was absolutely perfect, throughout the weekend. He was disarming for all his rivals, when at the 30th passage (the 16th lap with Soft tyres) he marked the fastest time in 1’42″208 against a 1’42″565 of Rosberg and 1’43″018 of Vettel (scored in the 15th passage, with fresh Soft tyres).
Sebastian Vettel – 8 He did not make mistakes in making the most of his Ferrari, confirming as the second force in the world championship
Nico Rosberg – 8 The attempting to snatch pole to the teammate (missed for just 42 thousandths of a second) are the reason of this vote. For the rest, he seems resigned by the overwhelming power of Lewis.
Kimi Raikkonen – 8 Amazing start, with a first round as a true world champion that makes you forget a Qualyfing, once again, under his chances. He immediately got rid of the two Williams, helping with the fourth place to consolidate the second place among Ferrari’s Constructors.
Felipe Massa – 8 He continues to trouble his teammate, defending himself with a car that, for the moment, is not up to the 2014. Great his fourth place in Qualifying.
Max Verstappen – 8 Good race and he deserved the missed points because of a technical problem, in the last kilometres. He gave us some good overtakings as an experienced driver, and not as a 17 years old driver who debuts in a F.1 world championship and on a track such as Shanghai.
Romain Grosjean – 7 As encouragement, for bringing the points to Lotus, which will have to work hard to return to the levels of 2013.
Fernando Alonso – 6.5 For the tenacity that he is putting into this season. He certainly did not expect it would be so hard.
Mercedes – 10 It wanted to forget right away the mistakes made in Sepang, legitimizing its technical advantage on track.
Ferrari – 8 Everything’s perfect in terms of strategies and reliability. Now is the second force in the championship, but work is not missing.
Williams – 7 It wanted to overturn a good project such as that of 2014, thus making a step back
Sauber – 7 Fourth power of the world championship, bringing home important points, waiting for the awakening of Red Bull and McLaren.
Toro Rosso – 7 Well done, it was a pity for the technical problems of Renault PU that have undermined efforts.
Red Bull – 5 It’s lost its guiding star. Strange for a four-times world champion team, with great technical and economic potential. The problems do not just come from the PU. Perhaps it need more peace and coolness.
Renault – 4 Looking for competitiveness, they’re sacrificing reliability. Verstappen and Kvyat will be forced to use down the third engine. And we have still to attend the fourth Grand Prix of the season.
