2016 Russian GP - The Russian strikes again

Cape Town - At the 2016 Russian GP Lewis Hamilton again picked up technical glitches during qualifying: a repeat of the MGU-H failure he suffered in China a fortnight ago. Nico Rosberg again won from pole. And Sebastian Vettel was again trapped in the (Daniil) Kvyat Wars.

End results?

Vettel, hit twice from behind in three corners by Kvyat, ended up in the wall. Rosberg’s lead stretched to 43 points. And the Flying Russian, the one who drives without brakes, got demoted to Toro Rosso.
