Lewis Hamilton is first F1 driver to win 100 races with victory in Russia

SOCHI, Russia (Reuters): Lewis Hamilton became the first Formula One driver to win 100 races with a victory in Russia on Sunday (Sept 26) that sent him back on top of the championship.

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen finished second, after starting in last place, to limit the damage with Hamilton now two points clear. Spaniard Carlos Sainz was third for Ferrari.

While seven times world champion Hamilton celebrated a personal century, his Mercedes team maintained their own 100% record in Sochi. The champions have won every Russian grand prix since the first in 2014. – Reuters
