The pilot of Red Bull Racing driver Max Verstappen has shared his impressions of the Sochi Autodrom, which next week will be the Grand Prix of Russia.
“This is an interesting track. Despite the fact that there are many long straights, Red Bull Racing and Toro Rosso played well here in previous years, ‘ said Max. – The circuit is located in the heart of the Olympic Park, which creates a special atmosphere.
The turns here are mostly under 90 degrees, which is rare. The track is flat: there are no large elevation changes, but there are sophisticated braking points.
Last year I was in the center of Sochi and found a good restaurant, which is sure to return in 2017. Let the name of the institution remains a secret.”
“We have come here – said his teammate Daniel ricciardo, so I think that the condition of the asphalt will improve. Racing coverage in Sochi resembles asphalt in Austin – it took a while to come to normal. I expect this year grip will be better. In Sochi on the new machines we expect a good speed.
Besides, it’s rather a difficult route. There are few places where you can breath – except on the long straight and all. Then you need to think constantly.
Some sections of the circuit reminds me of the track in India is a flat track where you can safely run into curbs. Also there are a lot of twists and turns that are traversed in the third-fourth gear”.
