Valtteri Bottas wins Russian Grand Prix
Lewis Hamilton’s quest for the alltime record of Formula 1 wins was put on hold when he was hit with penalties at the Russian Grand Prix.
Hamilton’s Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas dominated after the world champion was given a 10-second penalty for doing two illegal practice starts.
Hamilton’s transgressions put him on the verge of a one-race ban because of accumulated licence penalty points.
Bottas’ win means he cuts Hamilton’s championship lead to 44 points. -BBC
