image-6

Ferrari looked set to end Mercedes’ dominant run at the Sochi Autodrom, but in the space of a few seconds their hopes of victory vanished, with championship leader Lewis Hamilton seizing the advantage to seal a first Grand Prix win since the summer break….

Top Point Drives of the Day

  1. Alexander Albon (Red Bull Racing-Honda) 35 points: a pit lane start didn’t prevent him from slotting in behind teammate Max Verstappen for the chequered flag.
  2. Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) 27 points: the expectation of the Safety Car paid off for Hamilton and Mercedes
  3. Max Verstappen (Red Bull Racing-Honda) 27 points: combined with Alexander Albon to take fourth and fifth from P9.

Our Game

John Lo’s faith in the Mercedes drivers having a good day, paying off with 49 points from the first two rows while all other players earned a mere 15 points from the Ferraris.

Little has changed on our leaderboard as our top three players submitted identical predictions, while Michael fell 12 points off the podium chase.

    Finally! I was joking with a friend that Ferrari would find a way to mess with Charles, didn’t think they’d actually do it!
