The Russian Grand Prix is run around the Sochi Olympic venue and provides eye-catching photo opportunities which Formula 1 photographers maximise to produce stunning images, some of which are presented below.
It was an intriguing race which Ferrari were supposed to win, but a comedy of errors that at times typifies the Reds in their full pomp. Once again they somehow turned sure victory into bitter disappointment.
