The third round of the 2018 Formula 1 World Championship will be run at the Shanghai circuit from April 13 to 15. Here's how to follow the Grand Prix live streaming
After Ferrari's beautiful victory in Bahrain, Formula 1 is right back on track in Shanghai for the third Grand Prix of the 2018 season. For the team from Maranello, it was a great start: two victories on tracks that on paper saw it as the underdog and a consistency in performance that was difficult to predict after the winter tests in Spain. The dream would be to make three wins out of three, but in the turbo era Mercedes has never lost on the Shanghai circuit and the Silver Arrows are the number one favorite for the 2018 edition of the Chinese Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton will be fierce after the missed victory in Australia and the third place in Bahrain: although we are still at the first two races of the season, the points difference separating him from Sebastian Vettel is 17 points and he wants to take advantage of the favorable circuit to recover as much as possible. But Ferrari has already shown that it can amaze even on tracks where it should be in difficulty. And Sebastian Vettel wants to ride the magic moment of this early season.
The 2018 Chinese Grand Prix (April 13-15) will be broadcast live exclusively by Sky, which has purchased the television rights for the entire season.
