Mercedes-AMG on Sunday continued its 100% winning streak at the Russian Grand Prix, which served as round 10 of the 2020 Formula One World Championship.
Valtteri Bottas was the first to cross the finish line at the race held in Sochi, though he benefited from some bad luck for teammate and pole sitter Lewis Hamilton who managed to recover from receiving two five-second time penalties to finish third, 22.7 seconds behind Bottas.
Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen split the two Mercedes drivers, finishing second some 7.7 seconds behind Bottas. For Verstappen, it was his first podium finish at the Russian Grand Prix.
Hamilton received two penalties for a pair of practice starts he made prior to the race in an incorrect area. In addition to the time penalties, Hamilton also lost two points on his Super License, bringing him just two points shy of the 12 in 12 months
