Lewis Hamilton wins Russian GP after Sebastian Vettel ignores team orders

Lewis Hamilton won at Russian Grand Prix after a virtual safety car cost Ferrar's Charles Leclerc the lead. It's Hamilton's first win in four Grand Prix took him closer to a sixth world title. Ferrari lost the chances of the victory following a controversy over Lecler's team-mate Sebastian Vettel disobeying team orders. Leclerc played his side of the bargain, but once Vettel was in the lead, he refused a demand to let his team-mate back past him. Red Bull's Max Verstappen finished fourth, after starting ninth following a grid penalty for using too many engine parts, and his team-mate Alexander Albon fought up from a pit lane start following a crash in qualifying to take fifth, as McLaren's Carlos Sainz won the midfield fight in sixth place.
