The Sauber F1 Team finished the Russian Grand Prix back in the points. Felipe Nasr took the chequered flag in P7. At the very end of the Russian Grand Prix, Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari) caused a collision, and he was given a 30 second penalty added to the elapsed race time. This decision moved Felipe Nasr up into P6, and he collected eight world championship points. This was his second best result after the Australian Grand Prix, in which the Brazilian finished in P5. Marcus Ericsson was unlucky the whole weekend. Directly after the race start, the Swede ran into another competitor after he spun in turn two.
