Bottas joins F1 Finnish stars with Russian GP win

14 May 2017, 01:33 | Marlene Fleming

As the lights went out, Finn Valtteri Bottas enjoyed a ideal getaway to take the lead for Mercedes ahead of the two Ferraris before Grosjean of Haas colliced with Palmer's Renault.

Although Mercedes drivers Valteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton started with a strong showing, Hamilton's run was hobbled by a false start. However, despite the bullish talk from Bottas, Wolff remains confident that the two drivers, whom he has described before as having no baggage with one another, will remain friendly.

Raikkonen made it two Finns in the top three with Britain's Lewis Hamilton, Vettel's closest rival, struggling to match the leaders' pace and finishing fourth for Mercedes.

There was a safety-car stoppage after barely half a lap when Romain Grosjean's Haas hit the Renault of Jolyon Palmer on the inside of a right-hand bend, putting both cars into the wall. Alonso has failed to finish any of the opening four races, and the sight of him walking back to the McLaren garage was depressing, not just for the Spaniard and his McLaren team - but for the sport, too. "More than 80 races but worth the wait".

Bottas joined Mercedes over the winter following the retirement of world champion Nico Rosberg.

Bottas went for the pit-stop on Lap 28 giving the lead to Vettel, who lingered on the track a while longer going for his pit-stop about ten laps later.

North Korea 'disrespected' China with missile test
At the meeting, he urged countries to exert pressure on North Korea, and said the U.S. would use military force if necessary. North Korea is seeking to develop a long-range missile capable of hitting the USA mainland with a nuclear warhead.

Hamilton, whose bid for a fourth title last season was wrecked by reliability issues, finished 36 seconds behind the victor. Vettel followed in 0.617 seconds.

Bottas' team-mate Lewis Hamilton capped a hard weekend with a race to forget and finished only fourth behind Raikkonen.

Even with the holdup in traffic, Bottas won by just.617 seconds over Vettel.

Vettel was next up to try and lap Massa, expecting the Brazilian to lift through Turn 3, only for him to keep his foot in and make it hard to overtake.

Raikkonen's radio transmissions have become a thing of F1 folklore and the Finn provided much hilarity again on Sunday.

Hamilton is just ten point ahead of Bottas who appears to be improving week-on-week as he gets comfortable in the Brackley-based team. Hulkenberg claimed eighth place, and then it was Williams' Felipe Massa in ninth and Toro Rosso's Carlos Sainz in tenth to claim the final points.
