The Formula One circus heads to the Sochi circuit this weekend for the Russian Grand Prix. It is hard to believe that this will be the third year of the race and for Sebastian Vettel it is his second Russian Grand Prix in Ferrari red.
The four time world champion will be hoping that he can at least repeat his podium finish from here last season on Sunday.
Speaking about the circuit, Vettel commented by saying:
The track is located in the Olympic Park, where the Winter Games were held, it’s something quite unique. It’s an exciting circuit with a lot of 90 degrees corners. The track is quite floating, so there are not hard stops. It’s not that easy to overtake but overall quite high grip and good fun. I think that a lot of Russians enjoying the fact the Formula 1 is happening there so, it’s definitely a good Grand Prix. There is a factor that will affect everyone in the race: “Usually Russia is quite hard in fuel consumption. In the last two years, though, we saw that tires last very long. So, it becomes important to make sure you’re able to race flat out and you have a fast car in qualifying and you carry that into the race to ensure you have a good and strong result.
