NICO ROSBERG - 2ND, PADDY LOWE FROM MERCEDES, LEWIS HAMILTON - 1ST, VALTTERI BOTTAS -3RD
The Russian head of state, Putin, made a full race showing and gave the winner, Lewis Hamilton, his prize. Bernie Ecclestone, in a rare full race appearance...hasn't seen a full race in years...sat with Putin throughout the race. Coming in second was Hamilton's teammate, Nico Rosberg. Third went to Valtteri Bottas.
Mercedes clinched the championship for the Constructor's points. That was a given at some point since Hamilton or Rosberg have been 1st or 2nd in almost every race. Hamilton has also tied with Nigel Mansel for the most races won by a British driver. Thirty, I think. His next win will give him the record free and clear.
