Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton won his 100th Grand Prix and retook the lead in the 2021 Formula One world championship in Sunday's dramatic Russian Grand Prix, after long-time race leader Lando Norris slid off track during a late rain shower.
Axar.az reports that the changing conditions also helped Hamilton's title rival Max Verstappen finish second, after he started last following a penalty for exceeding his season's allotted total of three engines.
With Verstappen's Red Bull starting from the back, Hamilton knew he had a great chance to eat into the Dutchman's championship lead, but a poor start saw him fall from fourth to seventh on lap one as Carlos Sainz and Norris set the pace up front.
Poleman Norris looked the quicker of the two, and the McLaren driver took the lead from Sainz's Ferrari on lap 13 and began to pull away at the front.
