Lewis Hamilton delights in China win
Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton has expressed delight at his victory in the Chinese Grand Prix over the weekend, ranking the race as one of the biggest highlights of his career to date.
Speaking to the Guardian after beating current points leader Sebastian Vettel into second place, the Englishman admitted there had been some nerves during the final five laps of the race, but he felt he had fought hard for his win.
"This is one of my top three wins. It's up there with Silverstone and Monaco [in 2008]," he explained. "When you win having come through people and you really have to earn it, it feels that much better."
Hamilton also acknowledged some frustration after going several races without a victory, but said he had relished "every inch" of his battle against the likes of Vettel and Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber, who himself battled to a third-placed finish.
Vettel remains 21 points clear at the top of the drivers' leaderboard, with McLaren drivers Hamilton and Jenson Button occupying second and third spots.
