Hamilton on track for world title after Chinese GP win

Latest update : 2008-10-19

Briton Lewis Hamilton won the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai. With one race to go in the world championship, the McLaren driver has a seven-point lead over Ferrari's Felipe Massa, who finished second.

Britain's Lewis Hamilton won the Chinese Grand Prix on Sunday but was denied the world championship by title rival Felipe Massa, who finished second.
  
McLaren's Hamilton led throughout for a straightforward win but he remains just seven points ahead of Massa, taking the championship to a dramatic final race in Brazil next month.
  
Ferrari's outgoing champion Kimi Raikkonen was third after conceding second place to Massa late on. Two-time world champion Fernando Alonso of Renault was fourth.
  
BMW Sauber's Nick Heidfeld finished fifth ahead of his team-mate Robert Kubica, the only other title contender, who finished sixth to end his slim world championship hopes.
  
Hamilton, 23, is bidding to become both the youngest and the first black driver to win the world title after throwing away a commanding lead in the standings in his rookie season last year.
