Lewis Hamilton heads into the 2018 Formula One Russian Grand Prix on Sunday with a 40-point lead from Sebastian Vettel at the top of the drivers’ championship.

There are just six rounds remaining which means the Ferrari driver really needs a victory on Sunday to revive his title hopes.

Hamilton is in dominant form with four wins from the last five races. Mercedes also have an excellent record in Russia and have won every race since it returned to the calendar back in 2014.

The Russian Grand Prix takes place in Sochi and is a street circuit which goes through the Olympic Park used for the 2014 Winter Olympics. It’s a challenging course featuring some high-speed 90 degree corners and a long pit straight.
