Russian GP: Race start time, practice, qualifying, how to watch


Verstappen leads Hamilton by five points as he bids to deny the Mercedes driver securing a record-setting eighth world title.

There was drama last time around in Italy after the two collided to end each of their races without taking even a single point.

The Dutchman has been handed a three-place grid penalty for the race in Sochi after the Red Bull driver was deemed to be at fault for the collision.

The pair’s duel has only intensified since with a number of talking heads opining on the incident, and both may be glad to get back on track at the Sochi Autodrom.

Also keen to get back in their cars will be McLaren pairing Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris after their one-two at the Italian Grand Prix.

Ricciardo’s victory at Monza ended a nine-year drought for the team as he held his nerve to capitalise on the title rivals’ early elimination from the race.

However at a track where Mercedes have never been beaten, Hamilton will have his eyes on nudging back ahead of Verstappen at the top of the F1 individual standings.

The British driver’s teammate Valtteri Bottas was the winner in Russia last year to continue a seven-year period of team dominance at the site of the 2014 Winter Olympics.
