Lewis Hamilton, who won his third successive Grand Prix: 
“The fans have been incredible this week and they gave me lots of energy. All the hard work from the team has paid off and I just can’t believe how amazing the car is and it’s testament how hard everyone’s been working.

“I am really happy Nico is up here with us too it’s great rewards for the team.

“This team is on a roll they have done a great job, we aim to keep moving forward and improving and I hope it can continue.”

Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg who came second in China: “I am still in the lead in the Constructors Championship and that’s good considering the whole weekend went really bad for me. I had no communication with the team, so they had no idea what I was doing. I am pleased with second and I just look forward to Spain now and getting back to having everything working.

“It really is a pleasure to drive this car at the moment, it is so quick and it increases the enjoyment level even more.”

Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, who took his first podium of the season: “It was a good weekend we did improve the car a bit and to be on the podium is a nice surprise for us. I think I am third in the Drivers Championship behind Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton and we didn’t have the start to the season we wanted so to be here is fantastic.

After the start where he was hit by Massa: “It was ok and we were very lucky to finish the race and hopefully the next race will be a cleaner start.”

Daniel Ricciardo, who finished fourth, commenting on Sebastian Vettel refusing to let him past: “I was not aware of what he was saying during the race. I wasn’t sure what strategy we were both on but I got past. I don’t want to start any conflicts.”
