The ‘fine boy’ Brit is 2 points away from clinching another world title after cruising, no, racing to victory in Sochi.
This was Lewis Hamilton’s ninth win of the season after leading for the majority of the Russian Grand Prix.
That Nico Rosberg, the second-placed driver in the overall standing, retired early on with a throttle problem, means that the victorious 30-year-old Hamilton now needs just two points from the US Grand Prix to win the world title for a third time.
Sebastian Vettel finished in second while Sergio Perez found himself in third after initally being passed by Raikkonen and Valtteri Bottas before the Finn collided with the Williams’ car.
Romain Grosjean was involved in a heavy crash against the side barrier but the Frenchman managed to leave the wreckage unscathed.
Presidentn Putin was on hand to do the honours.
Congratulations are in order fine boy.
