HIGHLIGHTS: Watch all the key moments as Mercedes lead the way in second practice at Sochi


The first day's running of the Russian Grand Prix weekend is now done and dusted, with Mercedes – perhaps somewhat predictably – coming out on top.

Valterri Bottas topped the timesheets in both the morning and afternoon sessions, with Lewis Hamilton recovering from an uncharacteristically scruffy first practice – where lock ups and tyre flat spots saw him finish just 19th quickest – to take second spot behind his team mate in the afternoon.
