The 2010 Chinese Grand Prix was a great race to watch. With light rain, no rain and then medium rain the teams’ choices for when to change from dry to wet tires made a huge difference. Pushing through the light rain on dry tires brought Nico Rosberg (Mercedes GP-3rd) and Jenson Button (McLaren Mercedes-1st) to the front while most of the other cars switched to wet weather tires. The rest of the field was able to catch up to them as a result of a few appearances of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Safety Car. Lewis Hamilton (McLaren Mercedes-2nd) clawed his way up through the field and almost caught Button by the end of the race.
