Can Hamilton end Rosberg’s winning streak?

Defending world champion Lewis Hamilton has had more victories in Shanghai than any other F1 driver, which makes round three — next Sunday’s Chinese Grand Prix the ideal location for Hamilton to end Mercedes team mate and championship leader Nico Rosberg’s winning streak.

The triple time world champion qualified in pole position at the first two races of the season, but he can’t covert it into the top podium following the poor start.

“It’s not been a smooth start to the season for me, so to be in the Championship position I’m in right now is actually pretty positive,” said Hamilton, who lies second in the standings after a P2 and a P3 finish.

“If you can have two bad races and still come away with two podiums that bodes pretty well. I’ve come back from worse, that’s for sure! People keep asking me if I’m worried – if there’s a downward trend emerging. But I’m feeling the complete opposite.

“There are no real flaws in our procedure and how we’re working, so I know it’s going to come good. On a personal level too, I’m in the best place I’ve ever been psychologically. There’s very little, if anything at all, that can penetrate that.

“There’s a long, long way to go, so I’ll just keep working as hard as I have been. Now we go to China for the next battle. It’s a track that’s been good to me over the years, with five poles and four wins, so hopefully this race can be the turning point.”
