Racing – Formula 1: Lewis Hamilton Stars In Final Practice Before Russian GP
Lewis Hamilton headed Valtteri Bottas in a Mercedes one-two in second practice at the Russian Grand Prix, as title opponent Sebastian Vettel fought to stay put.
Hamilton pipped Bottas by 0.199 seconds while Vettel was 5th quickest in the Ferrari, 0.543 secs off the pace.
Vettel, who had a turn late in the session, begins the end of the week forty points behind Hamilton, with a max of 150 points accessible over the upcoming six races.
With Lewis Hamilton playing down a 40 point advantage, Sebastian Vettel will need a lot of catching up and reignite his title chance.

The Red Bulls of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo came at the 3rd and 4th position respectively.
They will begin from the back of the grid, since Red Bull have fitted new Renault motors to the two autos and, as they have surpassed the max number of motor parts, that implies they will get grid penalties.
No-with 150 points still on the table it could still go Seb’s way. Unlikely but not impossible. Personally I hope @LewisHamilton wraps it up with races to spare but it’s too early to crack open the champagne yet #RussianGP #F1
