Sochi Circuit

The Sochi Autodrom initially formed part of the venue used for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, but the tropical beach holiday resort on the Black Sea coast is now considered a Formula One hub.

The 55,000-capacity venue was designed by renowned German architect Hermann Tilke and a single lap takes in 1.7km of public roads, featuring 12 right-handed corners and six left-handers that combines both high-speed and technical sections.

Maximum speeds of 320km/h can be reached on the straight between Turns 1 and 2 with the average lap speed around the 215km/h mark.

The 5.853-kilometre track, which runs clockwise, is the fourth-longest circuit on the F1 calendar behind Spa, Baku and Silverstone. 

Daniil Kvyat has been honoured with the T4 Grandstand – which can see action at Turns 2, 3, 4 and 5 – being named after the Russian, who made history at the 2014 Australian GP when he became the then youngest points scorer in F1 history.

Directions: The Sochi International Street Circuit is in the Black Sea resort town of Sochi in Krasnodar Krai, Russia.
