Valtteri Bottas cut a frustrated figure after he was eliminated from the Russian Grand Prix on the final lap of the race.

Bottas had overtaken Force India's Sergio Perez for the podium position a lap beforehand and he was followed through by Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen.

Raikkonen tried to pass Bottas at Turn 4 but the pair collided, with Bottas being pitched into the barriers.

"From my seat I was starting the last lap in third place," he said. "I just got past Perez and then approaching Turn 4 suddenly when I turned in on the apex someone hit me from behind, that’s it really, very disappointing, ruined my day."

"I always give it my all…that’s why it feels pretty bad when it ends up like this, all the work you’ve done doesn’t matter when you get zero points.."

The incident is being investigated by the stewards.
