Valtteri Bottas fastest in first Russia practice

Both drivers cost themselves time when they had to continue on damaged tyres after locking up. Bottas set his fastest time on the soft tyres early in the session and then damaged the medium tyre set he fitted next on his first lap. Hamilton, who did not set a time on the soft tyres early in the session, locked up on his first lap on his next set of tyres – hards for him – and said straight away over team radio that they were “done”. Sainz and Latifi were unhurt after their incidents, at Turn Seven for the McLaren driver and Turn 10 for the Canadian.
