George ready for challenges of Sochi
Formula One moves on to the Sochi Autodrom for round 15 of the 2021 season for the Russian Grand Prix.
The 5.8km street circuit incorporates both the city streets as well as the Olympic Park, site of the 2014 Winter Olympics.
The Sochi Autodrom is the fifth longest circuit on the calendar and is comprised of tight, twisty sections as well as long straights and the most notable corner on the track; the fast turn four.

I feel rested and recovered after the recent triple-header and ready to go back racing once again in Russia. It’s a demanding track with some tricky sections along with some fast corners which make it a challenge for both the driver and the car.
The Olympic Park in Sochi is also a unique location to go racing and rushing past some of the venues for the Winter Olympics makes for a spectacular backdrop.
Following some strong results in recent races, including three points finishes in the last four races, we will be pushing hard as a team to carry that momentum into this weekend.
FP1 for the Russian GP will begin at 9:30am BST on Friday September 24.
