So far, the 18-corner Sochi layout has been likened to a mix between the Valencia Street Circuit and the Korean International Circuit.
Blending medium and low-speed corners with two long fast sections, the signature corner may turn out to be the long, fast, left-hand arc around the Medal Arena.
The circuit will feature two Drag Reduction System zones.
The first detection point will be just after the start-finish line with the activation point located just after Turn 1.
The second detection point will be before Turn 9, with the detection point just after the same corner.
