Russian Grand Prix
Sochi Autodrome
24-26 September 2021



Multi-coloured shapes moving at speed? Highly addictive? Nail-biting? Hmm… turns out Formula 1 and Tetris may have more in common than we first thought.

A fortnight after our unforgettable win at the Italian Grand Prix, we head to the nation that’s home to one of the greatest computer games of all time and the next stop on the 2021 F1 calendar, the Sochi Autodrom.

That’s right, folks, it’s time for the Russian Grand Prix and it could be another blockbuster.

Round      15
Where      Sochi Autodrom
When     24 – 26 September
Start time      15:00 local, 13:00 BST, 08:00 EDT

ANDREAS SEIDL, Team Principal

“Achieving a one-two finish in Monza meant a lot to each and every member of the team, who have been working incredibly hard over the years. It’s been great to take the time to celebrate the result as a team at MTC last week.

There’s still a long way to go for us as a team through the remainder of the season. We will continue to keep our feet on the ground and our heads down as the battle in the Constructors’ Championship is still closely contested.

Our key priorities remain the same: staying on top of reliability and parts management, extracting the best performance from our car alongside our colleagues at Mercedes HPP, and capitalising on every opportunity that presents itself.

“After a short break following the triple-header, the team is prepared and ready to head to Russia in the hunt for crucial points. The Sochi Autodrom is dominated by two long straights resulting in a high power sensitivity, however, the track presents relatively limited opportunities to overtake.

Therefore, it’s key we maximise our results in qualifying to give both cars the best possible chance to fight higher up the grid on Sunday.”
