Lewis Hamilton dominated the inaugural Russian Grand Prix at Sochi after Nico Rosberg blew his chances on the first lap. The German fought back to second place, showing just how strong the Mercedes is at the moment. The victory gave Mercedes its first Constructors’ Championship in Formula 1. It was a slightly unsettling event with Jules Bianchi’s accident in Japan hanging over the paddock and something of a pantomime on Sunday involving kings, presidents and dancing Cossacks, everything taking place in a theme park that used to be an Olympic facility.
