Carlos Sainz, looking for another step forward at the Russian GP

Sochi Autodrom (5,848 metres, 18 corners, in the calendar since 2014)

  • Carlos heads to the Russian GP convinced that he can be more competitive than in Monza, because Sochi has more slow-speed corners and this plays in favour of the Ferrari SF21.
  • Having a strong car in the third sector will be key to put together a solid weekend. The weather forecast is unstable.
  • Ferrari will introduce an upgrade to the power unit to evaluate the progress made by the team. Carlos will remain on the previous specification.
  • Carlos’ best performance in Sochi is a sixth place in 2019.
