Russian GP

About

The Russian Grand Prix is a Formula One race held at Sochi Autodrom in Sochi, Russia. The race was first held in the 2014 season and was won by Lewis Hamilton. Ever since Sochi has been a permanent fixture of the F1 calendar. The circuit has been called under question for a lack of action and for producing “dull” races in the past. The smooth track surface doesn’t help when it comes to tire degradation and hence makes it hard to introduce any level of unpredictability on this track. Mercedes has dominated on this track by winning all the races that have taken place at Sochi.

Racing History

The first race was held in 2014 that saw Nico Rosberg going off on the very first corner of the race. Rosberg had to pit and would then spend the majority of the race climbing his way back through the field. The race would be won by Lewis Hamilton as he kept a comfortable lead from start to finish. 

The 2015 season would see would yet again feature Lewis Hamilton dominate the weekend and win the race comfortably. The 2016 season however would see Nico Rosberg get one back on Lewis Hamilton and win the race. The 2017 season saw Valteri Bottas pick up the first race win of his career as he held off Sebastian Vettel to win the race.

The 2018 and 2019 seasons saw Lewis Hamilton picking up consecutive victories on the track while Valterri Bottas would turn the tables on Hamilton by picking up another win in 2020.
