Ce qui ce que

Il a gagné la course, ce qui est impressionnant.He won the race, which is amazing.

 Ce qui in this suggests the word race is the subject.  Why?  I am really struggling with which is the subject or object in more complex sentences.  Isn’t he the subject doing the winning ?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Ce qui (vs ce que) = what, which (relative pronouns)"

Hi Amanda,

In grammatical terms, it is the fact that he won the race which is amazing and not the race itself.
