VIDEO: The NBCSN crew breaks down Hamilton’s win in Russia


Lewis Hamilton took a huge step towards winning his second Formula 1 world championship with victory in Russia on Sunday, leaving his rivals trailing in his wake.

After four consecutive wins, the British driver now enjoys a 17 point lead over teammate Nico Rosberg in the drivers’ standings. Rosberg has not won since the German Grand Prix back in July, and appears to have no answer to his teammate at the moment.

In Russia, a mistake at the first corner forced Rosberg into pitting on the first lap of the race, and although he did manage to fight back to second place come the checkered flag, the German was some 13 seconds adrift of his teammate.

In this video, Leigh Diffey, Steve Matchett and David Hobbs break down the race from Sochi as we now look ahead to the United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas at the beginning of next month.
