Eric Bulle it is Important that race fans liked
Eric Bulle, race Director "the appearance in the calendar Grand Prix Russia - this is an important moment for Formula 1, is expanding in new regions. This is a very important step for the sport, but it is equally important that the upcoming race fans liked.
In Sochi, the first-class circuit, the track is built around the sports venues that hosted this year's winter Olympic Games, and is reminiscent of a street configuration includes several 90-degree turns, which will take place at approximately the same speed.
I wonder how popular the fans will be this stage. The McLaren team has participated in the Moscow City Racing show, where it was always a lot of spectators. Would be cool if in Sochi support will be equally significant. I hope we will have a successful weekend for Formula 1, and for McLaren.
Jenson button "it is Always interesting to meet new tracks to explore their features, borders, security zones - things that cannot be estimated in advance, until you arrive at the circuit. This task will be a priority for me on Thursday.
As with any new highway, truly they are revealed only when you first leave the boxes. I have not lost my enthusiasm for travel in new places, looking forward to Friday when I can try out the new circuit.
Kevin Magnussen "the Track in Sochi reminds circuit in Abu Dhabi-direct are narrow turns, in which accuracy is important. As in Yas Marina, the track has no UPS and downs.
It is difficult to immediately call possible for you to pass in Sochi no serious braking or obvious places where you could stop your opponent on the inside radius. Perhaps there is a chance to attack in the 11th or 13th turn.
The new track is always interesting. As a beginner, I would like to compare myself with more experienced rivals in relatively equal terms. This should be an interesting weekend".
