Well, he out-qualified him again. Let's see what happens in the race though.

Well - okay he did! I'm going to give him DOTOR for Russia.

Anyone predict Russia for his first win?

VB kept owning LH right through the weekend. Strong result in his 4th race. No way that LH will simply lie down though but looks like it's going to be a close year between them.

Looks Bottas will be a threat this season. Merc will hope they don't take too many points off each other and give Vettel the title. Either way, what a weekend for Valterri. Threat of team orders boosted him maybe?

So he did. Well done on his first F1 win.

For the Mercedes team, they now have to make a very serious decision. Vettel is a major threat and Raikkonen will be playing wing man no doubt. If Bottas and Hamilton keep sharing wins, they will hand the trophy to Vettel on a platter.

A strange race for LH. He kept asking the team why he's car was overheating. Everytime LH put his foot down he was told to back off because of temp's. The team said over the radio that VB's car was also overheating. But it couldn't have been because VB was doing much quicker lap times, while LH was told to hold back.

Not a mystery, surely. VB was in clear air most of the time, LH wasn't. According to team, they were both on the temperature margin but in having to follow, LH was a tad over it whilst VB was a tad under.

i thought VB did really well in recovering from that flatspot. my immediate thought was that it would cost him the race but it didnt.

points wise, did VB's win/keeping SV behind actually help LH more than it hurt him?

It helped him, of course. If Vettel had got past, he would have scored more points. So, given the situation the top four were in, it was better for Lewis that Bottas rather than Vettel won. It's all very well talking about no. 1s/no. 2s, but that only works if you can guarantee both your cars will be running right at the front. If not, then what
Mercedes needs is someone who can take points from Vettel when Lewis can't.

Let's hope Mercedes also has someone who can take points from others when Bottas can't.
