The Chinese Grand Prix gave us another race filled with drama and firsts. Mercedes won their first Grand Prix since the hey day of Fangio in the 50′s, Nico Rosberg scored his first pole position and his first Grand Prix win, Michael Schumacher is showing some of his old form again and the racing for 2nd to 10th position was very very close. In the end Button took 2nd and his team mate Hamilton took 3rd place. [27 photos total]
