The 2012 F1RWRS Chinese Grand Prix was the fourteenth race of the 2012 F1RWRS season and was won by Luca Pacchiarini - his and his team Pacchia's first and only win in the series. It was a popular win for the Italian and his small team, but the result was a contrast to his overall season, one comprised mostly of pre-qualifying misery. Even at the time of victory, Pacchiarini's team's future was in doubt and ultimately the result failed to turn the tide, with the team going bankrupt in January 2013.
