FORMULA 1 VTB Russian GRAND PRIX
We are pround to lounch FORMULA 1 packeges for the one of the greatest sport events of the year: Russian F1 Grand Prix!
The competitions will offer an opportunity to see the best drivers in the world, technically perfect FORMULA 1 cars maneuvering in the sharp corners of Sochi Autodrom and thrilling racing battles!
Designed by Hermann Tilke, the Sochi Autodrom is effectively a street circuit, evolving out of the internal roads of the park built for the city’s 2014 Winter Olympics. Formula 1’s first ever Russian Grand Prix took place on October 12 2014. The race was won by Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton, who was midway through a five-race winning streak that would ultimately see him clinch that year’s drivers’ title.
Looking at a map of the track, you are drawn to the epic Turn 3, a 750m constant-radius left-hander taking the drivers around the outside of the dramatic Poyushchiye fountain. The rest of the track is characterised by a series of 90-degree bends coupled to some rapid, flowing straights-that-aren’t-straight.
Sochi, occupying a prime spot on the Black Sea, is one of Russia’s top beach resorts in the summer, while the race’s early autumn slot should mean it’s just about warm enough.
Get yourself a seat in the Turn 2 grandstand – or the T2 Grandstand Vitaly Petrov, to give it its proper name – to oversee the track’s best overtaking spot, before the cars get back up to speed and slingshot into Turn 3.
Our F1 packages include event tickets, hotel accommodation and return airport transfers. We recomend a short Moscow stopover to compliment your holiday and visit the mesmerizing Russian capital!
