Live Event Coverage

Grand Prix from Russia // Formula 1 World Championship 2014

Published by Christine

A brand new track is supposed to level the playing field somewhat, but we still have Mercedes locking out the front row. It didn't go all their own way though, as Bottas looked on for a surprise. That spices things up for the race, with a handful of competitive cars hoping to take the fight to the championship leaders. Sebastian Vettel needs to recover after qualifying outside the top ten, whilst Felipe Massa has a strong car but starts way down the grid. With the weather set to remain dry, an unknown quality about the tyres that is causing consternation, and championship positions up for grabs, we should be in for a fascinating race today.
