Lewis Hamilton says winning Sunday’s Russian Grand Prix with a team order is his “strangest day” in Formula 1.

On lap 25, Mercedes asked Valtteri Bottas to let Hamilton through to ensure the team finished 1, 2. 

Hamilton described the win as “super uncomfortable” and said it was a victory “I am least proud of.”

Hamilton gained 7 extra points from the swap, giving him a 50 point championship lead over Sebastian Vettel.
