  • F1 2019: Red Bull and Mercedes raise questions over Ferrari engine

Five times world champion Lewis Hamilton, victor in Bahrain after Leclerc slowed while leading, has been more successful than anyone in China and will be aiming to win the race for a sixth time.

"It's the 1,000th race in the history of Formula One and I hope the auto will be as good as it was in Bahrain (until late on) so that I can continue to go for the results we deserve".

But there is little doubt that the Monegasque will be a race-winner in the future, something of which his team-mate Sebastian Vettel will be all too aware.

"I don't really know at the moment", Hamilton said at press briefing in the Shanghai paddock. "I don't know why they have it around Wimbledon [tennis], it's probably poor timing in that respect, but the weather's been good for the last few years at Silverstone, which is great for the fans".

And although Mercedes are way ahead in the Constructors Championship - that has mainly been down to Ferrari's reliability issues and team boss Toto Wolff is well aware.

But they are double-edged swords which also expose any shortcomings in terms of engine power and should prove once and for all which power unit can command supremacy after a ding-dong battle at the front of the grid in the opening two races.

Calling China the 1,000th Formula One race would be similarly inaccurate since there have been numerous non-championship Formula One races staged down the decades.

Uber finally unveils its highly anticipated IPO filing
The company is expected to begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker UBER as early as May. But its 2018 operating loss was just over $3 billion, down from the $4 billion net loss it incurred in 2017.

The Ferrari driver that has been racking up race wins since he arrived from Red Bull in 2013 but has not won a championship since he left Red Bull Racing. It's a very wide track in places with one of the longest straights of the year.

"If the residents of large cities have nothing to do on the race day, they can buy an low-cost ticket and take the whole family", Ecclestone said. 'I don't feel I've got one up on him, or anything like that, ' he said.

"I'm not one for birthdays, anniversaries and special days".

Ferrari are the only manufacturer to have competed in every campaign and the Italian outfit have won a record 16 titles since the constructors' championship was first introduced in 1958 as the International Cup for Formula One Manufacturers.

The vote has now been pushed back to May, which would mean that even if the motion was approved, it would be very hard to host a Miami Grand Prix in either the 2019 or 2020 season. It's a very technical track generally. It's no different to any race weekend for me. They won the first race, they won the second race, so you can't say they were stronger this year than last year. "It was the prize after winning a karting race in Miami organised by Juan Pablo Montoya".

Add to this the fact that ambient temperatures are set to be cool this weekend, many teams will struggle with graining and it could be a multiple stopper, adding more to the excitement of what is bound to be another fascinating race weekend.

Despite its rather grim location, the Shanghai circuit has, however, thrown up a number of decent races, and the sport will hope for another eye-catching spectacle in its 1,000th running.
