Yesterday, the Chinese GP took place where Lewis Hamilton was racing on another planet and led from start to the early chequered flag and beyond.. No surprises there, as the British 2008 World Champion seems more focused than ever and is tipped by many as this year's favorite for the championship.

But something big was happening on the other side of the planet. Porsche officially made its return to top endurance racing at the 6 hours of Silverstone. It was a rather surprising race where none of the Audi cars could finish the race. The returning Porsche team did pretty well by finishing third with Mark Webber achieving a podium in his first race with Porsche. Toyota achieved an amazing one-two finish with their TS040 hybrid race car on very wet conditions. Former F1 driver Sebatian Buemi was at the wheel of the winning Toyota and I bet he feels happier there.

The dominance of Toyota in this first race is the sign of a very disputed season and a thrilling 24 Hours of Le Mans next June. Next up, the 6 hours of Spa on May 3rd, it'll be interesting to see how the cars evolve until then!
