F1 Race Recap: A Silver Finish for the Silver Arrows in Shanghai

Blog: The Tibco Blog

On Sunday, we witnessed another white-knuckle Formula One performance by TIBCO partner Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport. Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas returned to the Shanghai International Circuit with their sights set on victory, as well as the pair of Ferraris just ahead of them in the front row of the grid.

After turning in his third Grand Slam performance during last year’s 2017 Chinese Grand Prix, expectations were high for Hamilton.

As Bottas took up third position on the grid, he prepared to start his 100th career professional F1 race.

The race started with a fantastic first lap, shuffling positions and advancing Bottas to P2 and dropping Hamilton back to P5.

As the race continued, a collision between Scuderia Torro Rosso teammates required a Safety Car, allowing only Renault and Red Bull the chance to stop into the pit for a fresh set of tires.

While Bottas and Hamilton were able to hang on to their position for several laps, the unexpected pit stop gave Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo the extra traction needed to pull ahead.

And while it was a tough fight to the finish…

Bottas crossed the line in second place, with Hamilton in fourth.

With many elements of the race to be happy about, and opportunities to analyze data and make improvements, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport will undoubtedly continue to make 2018 a Formula One season to remember!
