2015 Russian GP Pre-Race Stats

Well there aren’t really that many stats with the Russian GP as the first one was only last year, but here goes!

Sochi Autodrom is 5.853km long, the third longest track on the calendar behind Silverstone (5.891km) and Spa-Francorchamps (7.004km). The race has 53 laps and a race distance of 310.209km, second longest in 2015 behind only Sepang (310.408km). Valtteri Bottas currently holds the lap record at the Russian GP with a time of 1:40.896 and an average speed of 209kph or 130mph.

Currently 100% of the races at Sochi have been won from pole position and all by Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes. Daniil Kvyat will be hoping his Red Bull Renault is fast and reliable enough for his second podium of the season for his home race.

Fernando Alonso will be making his 250th GP appearance this weekend and a seventh retirement of the season sounds pretty likely for him too. Hamilton could get his 50th F1 pole too this weekend.

The Predictions

Pole – Hamilton

1st – Hamilton

2nd – Vettel

3rd – Rosberg

10th – Sainz

The Silly Stats

You would need 13,883,126 bottles of Vodka to cover the Sochi Autodrom track surface. That is enough Vodka to fill over five Olympic sized swimming pools.

3,342 Daniil Kvyats lying down head to toe would be enough to lap once around the Sochi Autodrom.
