Sochi – well, here we are then…

Never thought it would go ahead until, that is, I saw the first images of the circuit set-up. And now, here we are in October and post Ukraine it’s almost upon us and appears to be going ahead as planned (10-12th) minus controversy. Well, troubles elsewhere are keeping the press busy.

The Sochi Autodrom – in Krasnodar Krai, Russia and another circuit designed by Formula One architect, Hermann Tilke – features 18 corners across 5.8 kilometres and will host round 16 of the 2014 World Championship. It’s an interesting layout with a good mix of high speed corners and technical sections.

Sebastian Vettel was the first F1 driver to lap the circuit and you can see an onboard video of his lap here.

Pointless me posting images when you can see them all here.
