​​​​​​​​Sochi Autodrom is the most modern circuit in Eastern Europe, the only circuit in Russia hosting a Formula 1 Grand Prix. The venue has been designed by Russian experts in conjunction with Tilke Gmbh & Co., the head of which – Hermann Tilke – has designed most of the modern F1 tracks. 

The location of Sochi Autodrom makes it special - the circuit is located in the Olympic Park, which hosted the Olympic Winter Games in 2014. The most interesting part of the track is its long turn 3 - 650-metre turn is the longest one in the Formula 1 calendar, and the negative incline of the surface is a difficult challenge for the drivers.​​
