Russian GP race results: Hamilton reigns in the inaugural Sochi race

Lewis Hamilton continued his dominance at the Russian venue.

After unsuccessful try to take leading position from Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg had to change his tire set and fight the field from the back to his starting P2. 52 laps on a single set of medium slicks.

Despite his teammate struggling pace Valtteri Bottas managed to stay quite long behind the race winner. But he couldn't stand Nico Rosberg's attacking pace - finished in third with two McLarens behind. Jenson Button in P4.
