Lewis Hamilton takes Russian Grand Prix pole

It was restarted with just two minutes and 15 seconds left and Hamilton made it to the line with a second to spare. But in the final session Hamilton was flawless as Red Bull’s Max Verstappen pipped Valtteri Bottas to second. His problems started when he ran wide at the final corner on his first lap in the second session and had what was at the time the fastest lap deleted. The Finn improved on his second run but so did Hamilton and the Briton was in a world of his own. “I am starting on the soft tyre, which is not good,” Hamilton said.
