Nico Rosberg wins in chaotic Chinese Grand Prix; this is his sixth win a row with a dominant victory on Sunday.
Defending World champion Lewis Hamilton finished seventh following starting 22nd and last on the grid.
Sebastian Vettel in a Ferrari made second ahead of Red Bull duo Daniiel Kvyat and Daniel Ricciardo, followed by Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa.
Rosberg has won all three races of the 2016 F1 season. At the start German was overtaken by Daniel Ricciardo in a Red Bull, but the Australian forced to take a pit-stop in the fifth lap following a rear tyre punctured caused by debris on the track from a collision by Ferrari team-mates Vettel and Raikkonen.
Hamilton also a victim, colliding with the Sauber of Felipe Nasr, who was trying to avoid Raikkonen.
SC immediately led the race for track clearance; it was benefited Raikkonen and Hamilton, who had earlier had to come into the pit for front wing change and tyre sorting.
The safety car phase led to a flurry of pit stops, which continued to be a feature of the first half of the race as teams juggled with tyre strategies – Hamilton made five stops on the first 32 of 56 laps – before the race picture became clearer.
Rosberg took the chequered flag 37.776 seconds ahead of Vettel. Making up the top 10 after Hamilton were the Toro Rosso’s of Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz, followed by Valtteri Bottas in a Williams.
