LEWIS HAMILTON WON the 1,000th Formula One Grand Prix Sunday after grabbing the lead from Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas at the first corner and powering to victory in blustery Shanghai.

Hamilton, who started from second on the grid, took the world championship lead after romping home to win the Chinese Grand Prix by more than 6.5 seconds from Bottas, with Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel third.

The fourth race of the season takes place on the streets of Baku, in Azerbaijan, in a fortnight.
