The Russian race provided a new challenge for the drivers, with its unique layout and brand new surface. The Williams of Valtteri Bottas capitalised to set the fastest lap of the race towards the end, with Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton behind. Jenson Button proved yet again how much pace he has in the race, whilst Daniil Kvyat was also high up the fastest laps table.

Towards the rear, Marcus Ericsson shone again, beating two Lotus drivers and one of the Saubers. Kevin Magnussen struggled, as did Daniel Ricciardo compared to their respective teammates.
