Russian GP started with the announcement that Antonio Giovinazzi will replace Ericsson in Sauber next season and will partner Kimi Raikkonen. Tomorrow Torro Rosso is also expected to present Daniil Kvyat as one of its drivers for next year while Brendon’s future is uncertain. Besides all this, the battle for the driver’s championship is still on. If Vettel wins all remainining races, he still gets the title.
The model once again shows Hamilton as the favourite for the upcoming race with Vettel coming in 2nd. I do believe that Sebastian must win this race otherwise… game over! So, I would bet on Vettel. Bottas could be a surprise winner given his previous appearances in this circuit.
Ricciardo, Verstappen, both Toro Rossos and McLarens will get grid penalties due to engine change.
