Feature: Five Things to Watch in Sochi

Ahead of the Russian Grand Prix, we’ve got the key factors of the weekend to share with you!. Gone are the high lateral demands of cornering and in comes what is effectively a street circuit. Being mainly 90-degree corners, you spend plenty of time on corner entry and require good traction on exit. But it’s also not a simple drag race, with the activation point on exit of the final corner making it essential the driver follows the car ahead closely and gets good traction on in order to get the chance to activate DRS in the race. In contrast, Mugello featured the C1 due to the high demands on the tyres. This is because Turn 1 is effectively a kink rather than a proper corner, but it’ll still provide a thrill!.
