Hamilton Gears Up for China | Grid Penalty

Lewis Hamilton has been given a five place grid penalty in advance of the China GP this weekend.

His McLaren team had to change his gearbox.  He will therefore be a likely candidate for most places gained for anyone taking part in the Castrol Edge GP challenge.

Kimi Raikkonen had the same penalty for the Malaysian GP but managed a 5th place finish.  He has not been able to show his true pace so far due to this and other issues but maybe this weekend will have a clear run in qualifying and the race.  He was quickest in pre-season testing and has shown a very rapid return to race pace.  A win in China looks possible.
