F1 is back in Russia after a wild race in Bahrain a few weeks ago. Cliff notes for those who missed it -- Alonso DNF'd again even though the Honda power unit was detuned for reliability, Vettel and Ferrari wins a second race of the season, Bottas gets his first pole and takes 3rd in the race, Hams loses pole by 2 hundredths and finishes second, also gets a 5 second penalty while waiting for a really long Bottas pit stop during a safety car lap, Verstappen DNF's after a brake failure puts him in the wall, Red Bull is still fast, Kimi still has issues with car settings, Haas is quick before pending updates, the T-wings will be banned next season and passing has gotten a little bit better. This weekend in russia should be another great race. Mercedes is winning the manufacturers battle, but losing the driver's battle. I'm sure Hams will want to reassert himself and Bottas will continue looking to be a spoiler.

Enjoy your weekends.
