Having taken this year's first two Grand Prixs, German Formula One driver Nico Rosberg was looking for his third straight victory in China. He is now the fourth driver in Formula One history to win six races in a row.
The 2018 Formula One motor-racing season begins in Melbourne, Australia, this weekend. The scrapping of the controversial "grid girls" isn't the only change that drivers and fans will have to get used to.
Valtteri Bottas has captured pole position for the final race of the Formula One season. It is the second straight race in which he has beaten the new drivers' champion Lewis Hamilton to first in qualifying.
