The driver who wins in Rus­sia has gone on to be world cham­pion in the three pre­vi­ous stag­ings of the race in Sochi. Vet­tel and Fer­rari have looked like they have had an edge all sea­son on race pace over MercedesGP. The com­bi­na­tion tri­umphed in Aus­tralia and Bahrain de­spite start­ing be­hind the Mercedes cars. So with track po­si­tion at the start to­day, thanks to a first pole since Sin­ga­pore 2015, the Ital­ian team will be supremely con­fi­dent that Vet­tel can win again and ex­tend his seven-point lead at the top of the driv­ers’ stand­ings.
