Let sleeping dogs lie, or so the phrase goes. Not in this Sett and not on our watch.
In this edition of Hot Rod or Hot Dog we look at the teams in the midfield or, as they're known in the Sett, The Chasing Dogs.
With most of the country's newpapers heralding Sunday's race, we thought it would be proper for us to cast our eye over the race and beg the question: "Was China the most entertaining dry race of the modern era?"
We've named our driver of the race, but what about the rest of the runners and riders from the Chinese Grand Prix? In part one of Hot Rod or Hot Dog we look at the front-runners, better known in these parts as the Top Dogs.
The Badgerometer is where we compile a Top 5 things from the previous grand prix (or anything else we fancy when there's no race)...
The Chinese Grand Prix saw Nico Rosberg score his first points of 2011 with an impressive run to fifth, and the lad has rightly earned himself a place among Badger's highlights of the race.
"Hot Rod or Hot Dog" is our regular post-grand prix column where we review all of the driver performances in that race. As part of the process, one driver is declared as Badger's "Top Dog"; it's not necessarily the winner and, to be honest, it could be for anything - even driving into the wrong pit... (it's not Button though!)
We're looking at the Renault team's thoughts on their quiet weekend in Shanghai, the Enstone-based squad having found themselves removed from the spotlight for the first time in 2011.
Following Jenson Button's pitstop blunder in yesterday's Chinese Grand Prix we've been taking a look at what's being said about the Brit's mistaken trip to the Red Bull box.
What made today's race so exciting - KERS, DRS, Pirelli tyres? Yep, all of these were crucial, but what really allowed it to flourish was the start.
After a tremendous effort in qualifying, Jenson Button lined up alongside Vettel for the start of the grand prix and made the most of...
Our second highlight from the Chinese Grand Prix is the sterling job done by Mark Webber to charge from 18th on the grid to third at the flag. A stellar performance from the Aussie.
The first of our race highlights from the Chinese Grand Prix is, rather appropriately, the man who finished first: Lewis Hamilton.
To say the Chinese Grand Prix was action packed, would be one heck of an understatement - there was plenty of overtaking, different strategies...
Qualifying for Sunday's Chinese Grand Prix was again dominated by Sebastian Vettel in his all-conquering Red Bull. His lap time, set in the early...
It has to be said - pretty much everyone expected to see the Red Bull of Vettel grab pole position, and he did do just that, however, it won't be all smiles at Red Bull - the other side of the garage especially, with Mark Webber having a shocking early exit in the first round of qualifying...
After a disappointing start to the season by his Red Bull team's standards Mark Webber is looking for a boost in this weekend's Chinese Grand Prix - and he's hoping it will come from a fully-functional KERS system.
22-year-old Brazilian Luiz Razia made his F1 debut in FP1 today, driving the second Team Lotus entry alongside Heikki Kovalainen. So who is the lad, where did he come from, and here where on earth is he going?
