Ferrari bids to make it four in a row as Formula 1 arrives in Sochi for this weekend’s Russian Grand Prix.

Buoyed by its recent form, Ferrari will arrive in Russia full of confidence following three consecutive victories on the bounce, despite some intra-team tensions flaring between drivers Charles Leclerc and Singapore GP winner Sebastian Vettel.

Mercedes will be desperate to return to winning ways at a circuit it has never tasted defeat at, while Red Bull is looking to make it a three-way battle having endured a disappointing weekend last time out.

When is the Russian Grand Prix?

The 2019 Russian Grand Prix takes place on Sunday September 29. The cars will hit the track for the first time with Free Practice 1 and Free Practice 2 on Friday, before final practice and qualifying are held on Saturday. The Sochi Autodrom is 5.949kms in length and consists of 18 corners.
