Round fifteen takes us to the street circuit around last year’s winter Olympic park in Sochi. The circuit winds it was around the Black Sea retort taking in some of the main venues of the games. The circuit has a mix of corners and straights flowing through the streets. The mountains and coastline provides perfect scenery for the race.
The circuit still provides a few places to overtake. Mercedes will be the team to beat because of the fast flowing nature and a one-two finish will mean they could retain the constructors championship.
