The 2019 Russian Grand Prix (officially the Formula 1 VTB Russian Grand Prix 2019)[1] was the sixteenth race of the 2019 Formula One season, and the sixth time the Russian Grand Prix was held on the Formula One calendar. It was held between 28 September and 30 September 2019.

In qualifying, Charles Leclerc took his sixth pole position, while Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel qualified second and third respectively.

In the race, Vettel took a better start than Hamilton and slipstreamed Leclerc to take the lead, whilst Carlos Sainz, Jr. made up a place on Valtteri Bottas and almost got past Hamilton before the second corner. The safety car came out after Antonio Giovinazzi got squeezed and collided with Romain Grosjean and Daniel Ricciardo. Ricciardo limped back to the pits with a puncture, but Grosjean had smashed into the wall. After the safety car came in at the end of lap 3, Vettel was given team orders to let Leclerc back past, but he was quick to say that Leclerc was a bit far behind him. To give Leclerc back the lead, Ferrari opted to have him pit first at the end of lap 22, then Vettel at the end of lap 26. However, before he could complete the next lap, Vettel's car slowed down with an MGU-K failure, and he pulled off at Turn 16, deploying the virtual safety car on lap 28. Hamilton and Bottas took the opportunity to pit under the virtual safety car, with Hamilton taking the lead ahead of Leclerc. Immediately after the virtual safety car ended on lap 29, George Russell crashed at Turn 9, and the safety car was deployed again. Leclerc pitted again at the end of lap 30 and came out behind Bottas, but once the safety car came in at the end of 32, he could not get past Bottas. Hamilton went on to take his eighty-second victory, scoring his first win since the summer break, and scoring an extra point with the fastest lap. Bottas and Leclerc finished second and third respectively.
