F1 Russian GP: Wolff: Bottas, Hamilton relationship won't go like Rosberg

Bottas started third in Sochi, but jumped the Ferrari duo of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen before aptly controlling the latter stages of the race as four-time world champion Vettel closed onto his gearbox. Big congratulations to Valtteri. Fantastic job and he deserves the win. "He's been fast all weekend, so exceptional and great for the team".

"For me, just a very, very odd weekend. I'm just hopeful that in the next races maybe I'll be able to pick up the pace".

His teammate Nico Rosberg broke the spell of victorious Lewis, winning the race previous year and eventually getting the world champion's title.

"Ferrari are quickest in qualifying and generally in race trim, so it will be interesting to see where we stand tomorrow", added the Briton. Eventually he pulled away, got past the Felipe Massa, who he lapped, and headed straight for the chequered flag.

Kimi Raikkonen says he was happy to see his fellow Finn Valtteri Bottas score his first F1 victory in Russian Federation, even if the result meant a defeat for Ferrari.

"I can't explain it right now, but we will do some work over this week to fully understand it", Hamilton said.

"But now it's done, I just want to do it again and again". I think I had the pace to fight with Kimi, the vehicle was just overheating all the time. While Vettel stayed out for a long time, Raikkonen pitted first and came back out on track to start posting some excellent times.

Ducks look to rebound in Game vs Oilers
Getzlaf concurred with Carlyle's assessment of the difference in the game and was more specific about which facet proved decisive. Game one saw 6 goals scored in the third period alone as the Edmonton Oilers closed strong for the win 5-3 over the Ducks .

Sitting third in the standings after four races, could a world championship be within Bottas' grasp? Getting that first win gives you a lot of confidence that you can do it, even though I always knew I had the ability.

"It took more than 80 races but it was worth it, well worth the learning curve", Bottas said.

"This unusual opportunity came over the winter to join this team and I have to thank the team for making this possible", he added after meeting Russian president Vladimir Putin before spraying champagne on the podium.

The result left Hamilton 13 points behind title rival Vettel in the championship.

That situation poses another headache for Hamilton but is one that Mercedes are relaxed about having to manage. He has proven that he can win.

But the 27-year-old, who was plucked from Williams to fill Rosberg's championship-winning seat only in January, responded in exemplary fashion and must now be considered as a real threat, not only to Hamilton and his de facto number one status at Mercedes, but perhaps Vettel, for this year's title, too.
