Re: The 2020 Russian Grand Prix Thread

This weekend we are back at Sochi for the 2020 Russian Grand Prix.
After a catastrophic event for some at Mugello, it's time for all to get back behind the wheel.

So, what will be different this time out? Will Valtteri Bottas finally take that elusive win for 2020 or will be again be denied by Lewis Hamilton?
Have Red Bull and Honda solved the woes that beset Max Verstappen? Will Alexander Albon again step up and show what he is made of?
What of Ferrari? Are they showing progress or was Mugello a one off in a season of woe?
Racing Point showed some pace in the hands of Lance Stroll until what looked like a tyre failure stuffed him into the barriers.
And what of the mid-field battle? McLaren and Renault are clearly ahead of the rest.
AlphaTauri are probably next best with the final three of Alfa Romeo, Haas and Williams all close together.

Bring it on!

Sebastian Vettel had a crash with 2 minutes left in Q2 resulting an a scramble for drivers who had to improve to go into the next session. Lewis Hamilton was also one of these as his time was cancelled due to exceeding track limits.
