CHINESE GRAND PRIX RACE

DANIEL RICCIARDO WINS FOR RED BULL WITH A TWO-STOP STRATEGY
AFTER MAKING HIS SECOND STOP UNDER THE SAFETY CAR

A WIDE VARIETY OF TYRE STRATEGIES IN PLAY THROUGHOUT THE FIELD
WITH ALL THREE COMPOUNDS USED BY MANY DRIVERS

A LONG SAFETY CAR PERIOD, TOGETHER WITH TRACK TEMPERATURES
20 DEGREES WARMER THAN PREVIOUS DAYS, INFLUENCE RACE STRATEGY

MARIO ISOLA - HEAD OF CAR RACING

“After Bahrain, we enjoyed another race where some different thinking on tyre strategy among the leading competitors led to a very exciting conclusion, with many different tactics in play. Track temperatures today were around 20 degrees higher than they had been over the previous couple of days, which meant that the teams were facing a few unknown factors heading into the race, not having run in these temperatures here before. Another factor that influenced tyre strategy and ultimately the race victory was a lengthy safety car period, allowing both Red Bulls to change tyres at an advantageous moment, while reducing wear and degradation for everyone else who stayed out. In total, six drivers, including the race winner, used all three compounds.”
