The 2019 Chinese Grand Prix (officially the Formula 1 Heineken Chinese Grand Prix 2019)[1] was the third race of the 2019 Formula One season, and the sixteenth Chinese Grand Prix overall. It also marks the 1,000th Formula One Grand Prix.[2][3] It was held between 12 April and 14 April 2019.

In qualifying, Valtteri Bottas took his first pole position of the season, also marking his first pole at the Shanghai International Circuit. Lewis Hamilton qualified second behind, marking the first time he qualified on the front row at the Shanghai International Circuit without securing pole position, not counting when he was pushed back with a five-place grid penalty in 2012. Sebastian Vettel, the polesitter in 2018, could only manage third on the grid.

In the race, Hamilton made a better start and immediately snatched the lead from Bottas, while Charles Leclerc overtook Vettel at Turn 1. The virtual safety car was briefly deployed on lap 1 after a collision involving Daniil Kvyat, Carlos Sainz, Jr. and Lando Norris resulted in some debris left on the track, though it quickly ended on lap 2. Leclerc was later given team orders to let Vettel back past, doing so on the start/finish straight on lap 11, and then fell behind Max Verstappen following their first pit stops. Hamilton went on to take his seventy-fifth victory, while Bottas finished in second place, thus making Mercedes the first constructor to score three consecutive 1-2 finishes since Williams in 1992. Behind them, Vettel settled for third place, completing the podium.
