Finn succeeded the world champion by one point. He leads the defending champ of five times by a margin of just one point in this year’s race for the title. Furthermore, he had already taken a prime grid position in the races that took place in China and Azerbaijan. Bottas finished 6th tenths clear of his British mate clocking a record lap of 1min 15.406 seconds. This finish also points to the suggestion that this year’s title race may see the two Silver arrow racers go one on one against each other. Hamilton showed sportsmanship by congratulating Bottas for his stunning track record lap finish and stated that he was unable to extract the maximum advantage of his car on a track on which he was hoping of a far better finish. Hamilton is positive of another team victory for the Mercedes with him doing the job by taking the first spot.
Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel will start the race next Sunday with him being on the third spot. Bottas succeeds Vettel by 35 points. Bottas was not only good in the real deal but was also doing excellent while practicing, as he was the fastest in practice drive. Vettel despite good past records is yet to give a sound performance as he has still not topped any qualifying this season.
