Palmer: Sochi penalties 'killed off' chance of intriguing battle

Former Renault F1 driver Jolyon Palmer says that the penalties handed down to Lewis Hamilton for a pre-race infraction wrecked the chance for a classic battle in Sunday's Russian Grand Prix. Hamilton was handed two five second penalties for conducting practice race starts out of the designated area on the way to the grid. The penalties dropped Hamilton out of the lead for the race, and while he eventually recovered to finish third he was unable to catch Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas or Red Bull runner-up Max Verstappen.
