Lewis Hamilton has smashed Michael Schumacher's long-standing record in qualification for the Grand Prix in Shanghai. He was closely tailed by Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel.
Germany will have no Formula One Grand Prix in 2017 after the race was axed for financial reasons on Wednesday. The move means there will be no home race for new champion Nico Rosberg next year.
In the final race of the season Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg go toe-to-toe to see who can win the Formula One Championship. Rosberg has the advantage on the leader board but Hamilton starts in pole position.
