Sometimes drivers just click with certain tracks - and that's certainly the case with Lewis and the Shanghai International Circuit. He's always performed well in China.
There's something about the flowing, sweeping nature of the track that seems to suit Lewis' driving style and it's made the Chinese GP one of his most successful races.
When it comes to wins, China is tied with Hungary and Great Britain as Lewis' second most successful F1 race (he has six victories in Canada and the USA).
But, alongside Australia, it's his most successful race when it comes to podium finishes: he's appeared in the top three on eight occasions.
It's also been a track that the team has fared well at in the past. We've taken five wins, nine podiums and six pole positions from eight starts. And how we'd love to add to those tallies in 2018...
