Are Mercedes and Hamilton hiding reliability problems in F1 title race?

Lewis Hamilton claimed his 100th Grand Prix win to move into the championship lead, but it's Red Bull and Max Verstappen who will be happiest after the Russian Grand Prix.

The Russian Grand Prix at Sochi provided one of the most thrilling races of the season, as a late rain shower spiced up the on-track action.

With Lewis Hamilton winning, the Mercedes man shoots back into the lead of the Drivers' Championship, but Max Verstappen and Red Bull will be thrilled with their recovery to second place following their engine penalty.

Are Mercedes hiding reliability issues with their engines? Why did Valtteri Bottas take on another new engine – necessary, or unusual tactics? And does Hamilton need to take a grid penalty at some point himself?

Analysing the Russian Grand Prix are Formula 1 journalists Dieter Rencken, Mike Seymour and Thomas Maher, who also ask whether McLaren could have and should have won their second consecutive race by being a bit firmer with Lando Norris?

The RacingNews365 podcast also talks about the potential announcement of Qatar, the arrival of Igora Drive in 2023, and whether it's time for Aston Martin to intervene between their drivers. All these topics and more on the new RacingNews365 podcast!
