Valtteri Bottas picked up a trophy in Russia, which allowed him to jump up two places in the driver standings. He takes fourth place, but it's a close fight between the three of Bottas, Vettel and Alonso - just four points between them. Further back, Kevin Magnussen also managed to improve his position in the standings, after finishing in fifth just behind his teammate.

At the top, Lewis Hamilton extended his lead to 17 points. Still not comfortable, with a double point finale hanging over his head, but certainly a buffer to help him relax going into the US Grand Prix next time.
