2015 Russian Grand Prix

Starting second on the grid Lewis Hamilton challenged his pole position starting team mate Nico Rosberg after the German made a good start and led the early laps. When Rosberg's Mercedes car expired after only a handful of laps Hamilton cruised to a comfortable win.

Crossing the finish line in second position ensured that Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel moved in to second place in the drivers' champioship standings.

In a dramatic last lap shunt caused by Kimi Raikkonen -  the Ferrari driver crashing in to third placed Valtteri Bottas - the Williams team suffered disappointment just half a lap from a podium place. Sergio Perez gleefully took the position giving Force India a very popular chance to celebrate a third place finish.
