    So what Sainz is to Stroll......Kimi is to Bottas...happens to the best of them.

    Raikkonen and Bottas Collide: 2015 Russian Grand Prix | F1 Classic Onboard ( fast forward to 1:04 to watch the hit....it is similar to Stroll/Sainz).

    Ferrari's Vettel and Raikkonen move closer to F1 grid penalties

    Ferrari drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen have edged closer to Formula 1 grid penalties after taking their third new turbochargers of the season in Russia.

    Drivers are limited to four components of each engine element for the season, with grid penalties handed out if they exceed that allocation.

    This year, regulations have also been tweaked to prevent drivers from stockpiling engine components for the season to avoid penalties by making multiple changes on a single race weekend.

    Ferrari's change comes after Raikkonen stopped out on track in first practice for the Bahrain Grand Prix a fortnight ago, with the team subsequently changing his turbo, MGU-H and internal combustion engine.

    Customer teams Sauber and Haas have also fitted new turbos to both their cars, with Marcus Ericsson, Pascal Wehrlein and Kevin Magnussen taking their second and Romain Grosjean his third.

    Stoffel Vandoorne is the driver closest to receiving a grid penalty after the FIA confirmed he would take his fourth turbo and MGU-H of the season.

    Honda has introduced a reliability update for this weekend's Russian Grand Prix following a series of MGU-H problems in Bahrain.

    commentators are assuming Mercs will be close if not leading by tomorrow, which makes sense when they turn the engines on

    I think it will all go down to US tyres. As we are quick to extract much from it, i mean bigger gain. Where Mercs suffer from US, as they don't find bigger gains from Softs to US.

    Mercedes were shown to be carrying much more fuel than Ferrari as they were doing multiple laps on track before pitting

    Gap to RB is 1.8sec exactly same as Aus & china.
    In bahrain, we turned down the turbo may be thats why RB were close to us. Ric & Ves claiming RB have found much of time & close the gap to ferrari .

    I think they are heavier right now but as long as Ferrari is ahead that's good news
