The Formula One season so far has seen a change in power, Sebastian Vettel currently leads the way heading into this weekend’s Grand Prix in Russia.
It has been a year since we saw Daniil Kyvat’s first lap crash, which in turn lead to the promotion of a very exciting Max Verstappen.
Despite Ferrari’s Vettell leading the way, I can see Mercedes taking the initiative in the event, it is a track that will suit their car down to the ground with cold temperature’s expected this will be perfect for them.
In Sofia, Mercedes have experienced some superb form; they have won their last three events, with two-pole positions, which surely would have been three if it weren’t for technical issues with Lewis Hamilton’s car last year.
In terms of betting, I think, Lewis Hamilton, to score a hat trick (11/4 on SkyBet). He will be keen to take the top spot from Vettel on the weekend, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him dominate all round in Sofia.
