The 2014 Russian Grand Prix (formally the 2014 Formula 1 Russian Grand Prix) was the sixteenth race of the 2014 Formula One Season. It was the first running of the Russian Grand Prix as a round of the Formula One World Championship. It was held between October 10 and October 12, 2014.

Following Jules Bianchi's accident at the Japanese Grand Prix, Marussia choose to run just one car.

Lewis Hamilton took pole position ahead of Nico Rosberg after Valtteri Bottas' tyres gave up on his fast lap. The race saw extremely low degradation. Hamilton won very easily, while Rosberg, having flat-spotted both his front tyres on first lap, managed to finish second despite spending 52 laps on the medium compound tyre. Bottas finished third. Back down the grid, Max Chilton, Marussia's sole entrant, retired early on.

Mercedes clinched their frist Constructors' Championship as a result of the race.


BackgroundEdit

Because of some political issues between Russia and the Ukraine, the 2014 Russian Grand Prix was considered for cancellation. However, it was announced part way through the season that this would not happen and that the Russian Grand Prix would take place despite this conflict. Charlie Whiting visited the facility in mid-August and gave the circuit the green light to hold the race.

Jules Bianchi, having suffered a horrendous accident at the previous race, will be medically unable to take part in the race. Alexander Rossi was entered as Marussia's second driver, but he did not drive out of respect to Bianchi.

Sergey Sirotkin is to be given his first taste of F1 with an appearance in FP1. Roberto Merhi also got a drive in the Caterham.

Lewis Hamilton extended his Drivers' Championship lead over Nico Rosberg to ten points.

Mercedes, having extended their championship advantage over Red Bull to 190 points with just 215 remaining, could clinch the Constructors' Championship as long as Red Bull score less than 19 more than Mercedes (post-race, there would be 172 points remaining; simply equaling this total would give Mercedes title victory on wins tiebreaker).
