Facts and figures about Sochi, Russia

The Sochi Autodrom, previously known as the Sochi International Street Circuit and the Sochi Olympic Park Circuit, is a 5.848 km Formula One racing street circuit in the Black Sea resort town of Sochi. The circuit is similar to the Beijing Olympic Green Circuit and the Sydney Olympic Park Circuit in that it runs around a former Olympic complex; in this case, the Sochi Olympic Park site, scene of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. The inaugural World Championship Russian Grand Prix took place in 2014, beginning a seven-year contract.

Flashback 2017
Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas won his first race in Formula One at the 2017 Russian Grand Prix on Sunday, ahead of Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel. The Finn enjoyed an electric start as he took the lead at Turn 2 on the first lap from third position on the grid, which he held throughout the race despite a tense finish as Vettel closed in. Vettel's team-mate Kimi Raikkonen wrapped up the podium places, while Lewis Hamilton could only manage a disappointing fourth amid a difficult afternoon in which he suffered problems with his car and failed to trouble those ahead of him.
