About Russian Grand Prix

The Russian Grand Prix is an annual auto race held at Sochi Autodrom, a street circuit built around Olympic Park in Sochi, Russia, as part of the Formula One World Championship.

The race was first held briefly in the 1910s in St. Petersburg of the Russian Empire.

The plans were made to host a Formula One event in Moscow for the 1983 season as the Grand Prix of the Soviet Union. However, the plans fell through.

It was officially announced in 2010 that the Russian city of Sochi, which was also preparing to host the 2014 Winter Olympics, will host a new event on the F1 schedule beginning in the 2014 Formula One season under a seven-year deal.
