FORMULA 1 VTB RUSSIAN GRAND PRIX 2019 27 - 29 SEP

VTB Russian Grand Prix

Sochi is a medium-speed circuit with a variety of different corners, including one left-hander that has been inspired by the long triple apex Turn 8 at Istanbul Park. In total there are 12 right and six left-hand corners, with a 650-metre straight between the first and second turns. There has  been little track evolution over the years and the surface is low-severity, as a result of which the softest compounds in the range are usually nominated.
