It was a race to be remembered for Mercedes-Benz as Hamilton took his second Russian Grand Prix win, becoming only the ninth driver to win the first two Grand Prix at a new circuit. The victory sealed the F1 Constructors’ Championship for Mercedes-Benz for the second time in a row. The result also marks Lewis’ 9th win of the season and 42nd of his Formula One career, drawing him level with Sebastian Vettel in the all-time standings. A well-executed strategy by the Mercedes Team saw Lewis to the end. However disaster struck when Nico Rosberg was forced to retire on lap seven due to a failed throttle damper that the team was not investigating.The race ended with Lewis winning, Vettel coming second for Ferrari and Sergio Perez coming in at third for Force India. MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS now lead Ferrari by 172 points in the Constructors Championship while Hamilton leads the Drivers’ Championship by 66 points from Vettel and 73 from Nico.
