"Russia saw the opportunity to use the Sochi Olympic Park infrastructure to create an F1 opportunity. A 5.9-kilometre circuit has been designed around the Olympic Park, with the street circuit also making use of 1.7km of public roads.
Another track designed by Hermann Tilke. The circuit has a seven-year deal to host a grand prix, and at 5.872km it will be the third longest track on the calendar behind Spa-Francorchamps and Silverstone."
