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 twisty Hungarian circuit offers limited chances for overtaking but plenty of enjoyment for the drivers due to the karting style layout.
The 4.3km long Hungaroring is made up of 14 corners with a singular DRS zone and a fast, flowing second sector which keeps drivers on the edge of their seats as they power through the unrelenting series of corners and into sector three.
The HungarianGP will mark the end of the first half of the 2021 season as the paddock enter the summer shutdown.
George Russell – Williams Racing Driver
“I’m really looking forward to heading to Hungary this weekend. The Hungaroring is a circuit that I love, especially the second sector; it’s fast and flowing, and you don’t get a break from turn four to turn 11, but when the car is nailed it’s such a fantastic feeling to really extract everything from that sequence of corners. Budapest is a city that I really enjoy too, it has such a great atmosphere. I am going to be giving it my everything to make sure we end the first half of the season strongly, especially coming off the back of a number of strong races recently.”
George will be on track for FP1 on Friday 30 June from 10:30am BST.
