Lewis Hmailton, Mercedes,  F1 2014 Chinese Grand PrixLewis Hamilton believes that Bahrain GP done the strongest-possible come back with to all those playing down the spectacle of the sport’s new era. And also he claims that, it has brought new fans to Formula 1.

The final stint of the race, Lewis Hamilton with his team-mate Nico Rosberg launched a thrilling battle for top podium.

Rosberg v Hamilton battle continues though was not the only one as behind the team-mates, Force India, Red Bull and Williams into wheel-to-wheel battle around the Sakhir circuit in a no-holds-barred fight for victory.

“Every person who I’ve met afterwards, be it at the airport or the supermarket, has been ecstatic and excited about the race,” the Brit told Sky Sports News.

“Even at the airport when I came here, a guy came over and he was still buzzing from the last race saying it was ‘the best race I’ve ever seen’, so that’s cool.

“I’m sure it’s won over some more fans who weren’t previously interested so I think it has done the world of good for the sport.”

This weekend in China, Hamilton will be chasing his third victory at the Shanghai circuit. And, if he does, it will also be Britain’s third successive race win, a feat he has yet to achieve in F1.

But the Mercedes driver concedes that at every race weekend the drivers’ starts from scratch.

“When you have a win it’s great, but it then resets for the next race. It’s a strange feeling: I am coming here more energised than ever to win this race.

“It’s a massively challenging circuit and we don’t know what is going on with the weather and hopefully we’ll be competitive.”
