The Formula 1 action returns with the Russian Grand Prix taking place this weekend. With Lewis Hamilton earning yet another win at Mugello, it’s looking increasingly likely that he’ll wrap up his seventh drivers championship later this year. Another win this weekend and he’ll match Michael Schumacher’s long-standing record of 91 wins.
But so far Valtteri Bottas has been topping the timesheets in practice at another circuit that he tends to go well at. If he is to have another chance at the championship, he’ll need to start cutting the deficit at the Sochi circuit. Elsewhere Renault look to be slightly ahead of Red Bull with Danny Ricciardo high up the placings in practice. The Red Bulls look likely to struggle at a grand prix they’ve never particularly gone well at, while Ferrari look set for another disappointing weekend at the Sochi Autodrom.
