How to watch the Chinese Grand Prix: Free, online, live stream and F1 TV

The Chinese Grand Prix is often a special race, but it will be an occasion to savour in 2019 as it the 1000th race in Formula 1 history! Mercedes used to be a near-guarantee for success in Shanghai, and the race will begin with another all-Silver front row.

With one of the longest straights of the year, China always favours speed – and the Ferrari is thought to be the quickest car on the grid currently.

However, Mercedes' W10 is nippy in the corners, with several technical turns on the Shanghai circuit which helped Valtteri Bottas take pole position ahead of Lewis Hamilton.

The Red cars are just behind and will hope to exert a show of power on the opening lap, with Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc starting on the second grid..

Can they do it? You'll have to tune in to find out.
