Nico Rosberg has won a fourth time this season after winning the Russian Grand Prix, which he dominated since the start. At the same time, it wasn’t easy for Lewis Hamilton as he had an engine failure in the qualifying round and consequently had to start at 10th position. However, as expected Hamilton was the best in the race, fighting back hard to gain 8 positions and finishing second. Now, Rosberg is leading with 43 points after his victory.
Other happenings at the Grand Prix include Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel’s crashing out on the first lap after being hit twice by Red Bull’s Daniil Kvyat. Hamilton was impressive, but had bad luck when he closed dramatically on Rosberg in the mid-part of the race, however had to back off to protect his engine.
After Hamilton overtook Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen on lap seven and Williams driver Valtteri Bottas on lap 19, he came to second position right behind Rosberg. Though the Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived late, he watched Rosberg and Hamilton finishing the race.
