Well another soggy Grand Prix gave us our first Red Bull win at the Chinese Grand Prix.

Sebastian Vettel kept his tutonic cool to take the chequered flag, with team-mate Mark Webber hot on his heels.  The Brawns of Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello took a distant third and forth place respectively.

Predictably the race was something of a demolition derby with crash-outs from Sutil, Massa, and Trulli who took a nasty shunt from Kubica’s BMW.

Lewis Hamilton gave a good account of himself, with  some hair-raising overtaking on the outside.  Altogether though he is not a fan of the rain, which made him spin out, and he was surprised to finish sixth.

Although it was wet and blustery race there was a lack of controversy compared to previous races this year.  Play was fair and above board in all respects.

And as for the supporting cast, well they just hung on and gritted their teeth.  No doubt everybody is looking forward to a hot dry race in Bahrain.
