Valtteri Bottas smashed it out of the (Olympic) park on the Friday of the Russian Grand Prix weekend, going fastest in both sessions for Mercedes, finishing ahead of team mate Lewis Hamilton in Free Practice 1 and Free Practice 2.

That’s hardly surprising, with Bottas having a particular affinity for the Sochi Autodrom at which he won his first ever Grand Prix in 2017, gave up a win to Hamilton in 2018 and won at again last year.
