Russian GP Review and Full Recap (Part 1)

Rate this Entry
It's time to review the next race in the F1 Calander, this time it's the Russian GP!

(I'm gonna do a few posts, as my recap doesn't fit into the 10000 character limit or the 10 picture limit)

Lap 1:



MAYHEM! BOO-YAH!

Carlos Sainz crashes into the wall while rejoining the track:



and Lance Stroll gets hit, presumably by Charles Leclerc, spins and crashes.


At the front, Hamilton is leading, but he is under investigation. Bottas is in 2nd and Verstappen is in 3rd.

Lap 6:

The race is restarted. A quiet restart, however Hamilton's in trouble...

Lap 7:

5 SECOND TIME PENALTY FOR CAR 44 (HAM) - PRACTICE START VIOLATION 1
5 SECOND TIME PENALTY FOR CAR 44 (HAM) - PRACTICE START VIOLATION 2

2 5 seconds penalties for him. The commentators are now discussing whether the penalties can be served the same.

Lap 9:

Meanwhile, the first lap incident is dismissed as a racing incident.
Verstappen is also complaining about tyre grip.
Perez is now under investigation for a turn 2 violation...



Lap 10:

So far, this race has been good, exceeding my expectations.
Perez's warning has also been dismissed.

Lap 11:

Meanwhile, Albon, Russell and Norris are battling for 16th position. They are giving each other room, but this is compromising their race as they lose ground to the top 10 every lap that passes. However, Russell locks up, which leaves him at the back of the pack.


Lap 14:

Do not stop me now, do not!
-Lewis Hamilton

He sets the best lap of the race, showing that he is still happy with his tyres

Lap 15:

Perez and Riccardo have a fight for 5th. Perez gets the position, and Riccardo goes into the pits. This lap also sees the pitstop of George Russel.#

Lap 16:

HAMILTON PITS!


It turns out that he can serve it as 1 penalty.
His target is to get out before Riccardo, and he does. He slots in 11th, behind Vettel.

Lap 17:

Meanwhile, Bottas now has the fastest lap.

Lap 19:

On the straight, Hamilton passes Vettel for 7th on the road. Vettel is yet to pit.


Lap 20:

Bottas sets another fastest lap.

Lap 21:

This race has started to get boring, not a lot to tell you about recently. Perez pits and gets out ahead of Vettel, who hasn't pitted yet, and Ocon.

Bottas yet again sets another fastest lap.

(Part 2 will come out shortly)
