during the Formula One Grand Prix of Russia at Sochi Autodrom on May 1, 2016 in Sochi, Russia.

Mercedes Nico Rosberg has won his seventh consecutive Formula 1 Grand Prix, with a dominant victory at the Russian GP.

Rosberg has won four races from four starts this season and has won seven consecutive races since the end of 2015.

Teammate Lewis Hamilton finished second, while Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen finished third.

The win extends Rosberg's championship lead to 57 points, ahead of Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel.

Meanwhile, Australian Daniel Ricciardo was left furious with teammate Daniil Kvyat, ahead the youngster effectively ruined Ricciardo's race at the Turn 2 on the first lap.

Kvyat cannoned into Sebastain Vettel, who in turn, hit Ricciardo, sending the Aussie spinning off the track.

Ricciardo regrouped to surge back up the field to finish 11th, but Vettel was forced to retire due to the damage.

“That’s where it all sort of ended; the start,” a disappointed Ricciardo said after the race.

“We finished the race but we had a lot of damage from the first corner.”

“I saw Seb come into me but I knew it wasn’t him, because the way he came into me wasn’t natural. I knew he’d got hit from behind.

“I asked the team whose fault it was — I think they said Seb to keep me a little bit calm — but I saw a replay under the safety car. I saw the screens and it looked like it was Dani.

“It’s frustrating. Not only my race, but a few were ruined today.

“If Dani’s hit Seb, I don’t know where Dani was going.

“It’s not like there was room on the inside — from what I remember we were three in a line so the track was blocked for him."
