Fastest laps - Russian Grand Prix 2015 - Vettel sets fastest lap with Räikkönen close behind

Sebastian Vettel scooped the fastest lap of the Russian race, a couple of tenths faster than Ferrari teammate Kimi Räikkönen. Lewis Hamilton was next in line, with Nico Rosberg much further back due to the issues experienced on his Mercedes that saw him retire from the race. The Williams pair had a good showing in Sochi, with Massa just a few tenths faster than Bottas.

In other teammate battles, Kvyat outpaced Ricciardo, Sainz was just ahead of Verstappen - although both further down the table than they might have liked, and Will Stevens was just marginally faster than returning teammate Roberto Mehri.
