The next Grand Prix of this season will be in Sochi, Russia. A race not particularly appreciated by F1 purists, but rest assured, it won’t be long.
Only two races to go and the Russian Grand Prix moves from Sochi. The FIA has just given its approval, the next Russian circuit to host an F1 Grand Prix is none other than Igora Drive, near St. Petersburg. In 2023, the paddock will take its suitcases installed since 2014 at the Sochi autodrome for a new route.
Great news for most F1 fans who never really enjoyed this “boring” track.
The Igora Drive layout should hold more surprises for the drivers who will have to deal with different technical parts. Here it is.

On the menu, a quadruple left turn followed by a big drop similar to the circuit in Portimão, Portugal. Suffice to say that the fans will have a show in Russia, a first for a long time. The circuit will be slightly lengthened in view of the arrival of F1, seeing its development go from 4.08 km to 5.18 km.
The two long straight lines between each technical part will also keep the intensity of the race, in short, we will have a blast!
