Bottas wins Russian GP

Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas secured his maiden Formula 1 victory by holding off a late charge from Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel in the Russian Grand Prix. Bottas jumped Vettel and team-mate Kimi Raikkonen at the start from his third position on the grid and dominated until the closing stages, when Vettel used a late pit stop to close up and pressure the Finn.

The four-time champion got to within a second and a half of Bottas with 10 laps to go but the Finn responded and kept Vettel at arm’s length for the rest of the race. Bottas’ team-mate Lewis Hamilton capped a difficult weekend with a race to forget and finished only fourth behind Raikkonen.
