Mercedes has the opportunity to wrap up the 2015 Formula 1 constructors' championship at the Russian Grand Prix if the German manufacturer outscores Ferrari by three points.

The Silver Arrows squad clinched the 2014 title at Sochi and is in a prime position to repeat the feat this season. Mercedes currently holds 169-point advantage over the Scuderia and with five races remaining can seal the teams' championship if it outscores them by three points.

Having taken a one-two result when the Russian Grand Prix made its debut on the F1 calendar last year, Mercedes' defence looks almost certain whether it is to be achieved at Sochi or at the next race in the United States.
