Bottas wins in Turkey as Verstappen retakes F1 lead


Valtteri Bottas won a wet Turkish Grand Prix for Mercedes on Sunday while Red Bull's Max Verstappen finished second to take back the Formula One world championship lead.

Verstappen is now six points clear of Lewis Hamilton, who went from 11th on the grid to fifth in the latest race.

But the Mercedes' seven times world champion was unhappy that a late pitstop denied him a possible podium place.

He had been two points ahead of Verstappen going into the race.

Red Bull's Sergio Perez finished third at the Istanbul Park circuit, while Bottas, who had not won for more than a year, also took a bonus point for fastest lap.
