After yet another wet race Sebastian Vetter came on top for Red Bull Racing and claim his second win of his career. Not to be outdone his teammate, Mark Webber finished the race in 2nd to make it a Red Bull 1-2 on the podium. Jenson Button keep his string of good results this year by completing the podium in 3rd. The race itself was pretty much in wet condition throughout the race and never fared better, but it wasn't as bad as it was in Malaysia a couple of weeks ago thats got to be said...

The race did however started behind the safety car for safety reasons and after 4-5 laps behind the safety car the race was declared safe enough to race and the greed flag was waved to get things going. There were a lot of drama during the race and tons of overtaking in the midfield and also a lot of spins and accidents considering the unfavorable conditions. Vettel did lead from start to finish and was on a league of his own compared to the rest of the field, setting the fastest lap during the race and lapping consistently without much mistake. On the other hand though, Ferrari did have a terrible time at Shanghai with Felipe Massa retiring on the 21st lap with mechanical failure of sorts and Kimi Räikkönen finishing at a lowly 10th place. Not a good start to the season for Ferrari at all.

All things considered, it has been one of the most unpredictable seasons yet with Brawn GP, Toyota and now Red Bull on top of the constructors standings while McLaren and Ferrari having to play catch up and develop their cars further in order to be up on top again. Jenson Button is still leading comfortably in the drivers standings but it is still too early to tell who would be the ones that are gonna be the champions at the end of the season.
