Designed by Herman Tilke, the Sochi Autodrom circuit has been a regular fixture on the Formula One series calendar since 2014. Ahead of the 2017 Russian Grand Prix, Mobil 1 The Grid takes a lap of the 5.848 km circuit.
Well, we say lap – but laps would be more to the point.
The camera has been strapped to the very front of the race car and you are literally inches from the tarmac, as the driver pilots you around the Sochi Autodrom. One could say that it’s little like playing F12016 with the perspective of nosecam – but either way, it’s a brilliant way to check out the circuit.
