Lewis Hamilton has dedicated his Russian Grand Prix victory to Jules Bianchi and his family.

Bianchi remains in a critical but stable condition in hospital in Japan following his accident in the Japanese Grand Prix. With the race in Sochi coming just a week later, emotions have been raw as the drivers and teams have met with the FIA to try and find ways of improving safety, and Hamilton said he has been thinking about Bianchi throughout the weekend.

"All week there's been just one person on my mind, and that's Jules," Hamilton said. "There has been excitement and happiness for the team, but without a doubt every time I've got in the car this week, coming here, being here, I've been thinking about him and his family and keeping him in my prayers every day.

"Whether it means anything, or whether it does anything, it would be great to dedicate this to Jules and his family.
