Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes has pole position for the 2019 Formula One Chinese Grand Prix. It’s set to be the 1,000th championship race ever contested in the sport, and Bottas will have teammate Lewis Hamilton next to him on the front row.
When and where is the race?
The Shanghai International Circuit in Shanghai hosts the third round of the championship. The race has been part of the Formula One calendar since making its debut in 2004 and is set to remain part of the championship until at least next year.
The Chinese GP has seen a different driver winning in each of the last three seasons and only three drivers—Hamilton, Fernando Alonso and Nico Rosberg—have finished on top of the podium more than once in Shanghai.
The race is scheduled to get underway at 2:10 p.m. local time (2:10 a.m. ET) on Sunday, April 14.
