2017 Russian Grand PrixView

After a few days of in-season testing at Bahrain last week, Formula One moves to Sochi for the fourth round of the 2017 season, the Russian Grand Prix.

It is also one of the longest tracks in Formula One, as only Spa-Francorchamps (7.004 kilometers), Baku City Circuit (6.006 kilometers) and Silverstone (5.891 kilometers) are longer.

Organisers of the Russian Grand Prix say that the change in the scheduling of the race from next year will boost the event.

From next year, Russia's race will take place on May 1, and organisers say that hosting the sport in the Spring should aid the event. "We welcome the decision of the World Motor Sport Council, and […]
