The Formula 1 Russian Grand Prix has ended in heartbreak for Lewis Hamilton. Teammate Valtteri Bottas took advantage of Hamilton penalties to win the Russian Grand Prix. Red Bull Max Verstappen finished 3rd.
It was a big day for Hamilton as he was standing at the cusp of equalling Michael Schumacher’s the all-time record for grand prix victories from pole position on Sunday but the Briton failed to deliver his 91st F1 victory.
Hamilton was given two five-second time penalties for practice start violation and the 7 time champion could never recover from the setback.
