Russian GP 2017

After getting very accurate predictions for Bahrain GP, I wonder whether the model will be able to replicate that success for the upcoming Russian GP. Vettel is expected to separate the two Mercedes while Ricciardo will qualify ahead of the 2nd Ferrari of Raikkonen. Race predictions have been updated after the qualifying.

For some reason I believe that Verstappen may surprise us and qualify higher than expected. I would also bet on Sainz qualifying and finishing in the top 10 positions; possibly a bit higher than that. The McLarens will struggle with the start-and-stop nature of the track.

Although I did not correctly predict Bottas’ win, predicting that Hamilton would finish P4 was quite a good prediction! Let’s see the accuracy at the next race!
