Red Bull shines in Shanghai

The Red Bull drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber took first and second place respectively in a rain affected Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai.

For a moment I thought it was going to be the same story as in Malaysia two weeks ago when a partial race was run because of the persistent rain but this time the full race was run and the Red Bull team took the honours in the conditions.

This was the first Red Bull team win and the second for Vettel who won the Italian grand prix but last year when he was racing for Torro- Rosso.

This was also the highest finish for Webber and a good eight points will set him nicely at this stage of the season. I hope that this will be a good season for Webber and he will appear more times on the podium.

The last podium place went to Brawn GP's Jenson Button the winner of the first two grand prix. Although he ended up finishing third I think he could have finished as high as first but the conditions made everything dicey.

In fourth place was Button's team mate Rubens Barrichello completing a pair for third and fourth place.

McLaren took the fifth and sixth places with Heikki Kovalainen finishing fifth ahead of his team mate Lewis Hamilton who had started ninth on the grid.

Toyota picked some more points in this race with Timo Glock finishing seventh and in the last points place was Toro Rosso-Ferrari's Sebastien Buemi.

It wasn't a good race for Ferrari once again with Felipe Massa failing to finish and Kimi Raikkonen only managing a tenth placing despite starting eighth on the grid.

Ferrari seem to have a lot of work to do this year and In fact only Force India and Ferrari are the only teams without any constructors' points.

So the next race is the Bahrain race in a week's time and lets hope it will be a dry race this time.
