6:31 am on 21 April 2014

British driver Lewis Hamilton has completed a hat-trick of wins by leading a Mercedes one-two from German team-mate Nico Rosberg, in the Chinese Formula One Grand Prix.

Rosberg followed Hamilton home for the third race in a row to retain the overall lead in the championship, four points ahead of his team-mate.

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, last year's winner in Shanghai, finished third.

Victory from pole position was the 25th of Hamilton's career, pulling him level with Niki Lauda and the late Jim Clark in the all-time list of winners, and the first time the 2008 champion had won three races in a row.
