China F1 2012 – Race Results. What a race!


Wow!

I commented on yesterday while mentioning the qualifying results that we might be in for a good race, that was the biggest understatement of the weekend.

Today’s race was (in my opinion anyway) the best race I’ve watched in at least the last 10 years. Constant battles for position, pit stops and a train of 8 cars battling for 2nd position was simply an awesome bit of racing to watch.

Nico Rosberg grabbed his first victory after qualifying in pole yesterday, followed by the two McLarens. All in all, this was a fantastic race, I think I might even watch it again tonight just to make sure I didn’t miss a single minute of it.

Keep an eye on the SuperSport video highlights page for the highlights to be shown. Trust me though, try and watch a re-run of this race even if you know the results.
