Apparent y the tyres were quite bad after Valterri flat spotted them, so it makes his win even more impressive

Isn't LH down as saying he hates the Russia track? Pretty sure if you hate a track, you ain't going to win on it.

Not at all. Jim Clark hated Spa but won there.

Don't worry, he knows now that he must copy Bottas' car set-up, everything should be good!

Lewis wins this round. Pole, fastest lap and the win.

The team managed to get Valerie back up the grid to finish second. Valerie once again proves he is an excellent number 2 driver, and just may have scored a contract for 2018.

It just was Lewis' day yesterday. He was just in the zone.

Bottas could never catch Hamilton, so he settled for a solid second place

Although Lewis won today(and very dominantly) - I would have to say Bottas' overtake on Vettel was a career defining moment. He just keeps getting better.

Yep, although Lewis was in complete control of the whole weekend, Bottas looked very good indeed on what turned out to be an excellent strategy.

Very impressed by Bottas. He certainly seems to be more than a realiable number 2. I'm starting to think Hamilton/Bottas could be like Stewart/Cevert if you know what I mean

Indeed. He is a VERY reliable number 2 driver.

He's actually more a number 1.5 as the old saying goes
