Formula 1 heads to the Sochi Autodrom for the penultimate time for this weekend's Russian Grand Prix.

Since its introduction to the F1 calendar in 2014, Mercedes has been unbeatable, winning every race.

Max Verstappen has a three-place grid penalty for this weekend after his collision with Lewis Hamilton, so Red Bull might decide to give him a fresh power unit and start him from the back of the grid.

That's the case with Ferrari, with Charles Leclerc starting Sunday's race from the back due to engine penalties.

What to expect from this weekend?

Pirelli has nominated the C3, C4 and C5 tyres for this weekend - the softest in its range. 

Dry conditions are expected on Friday, while rain is forecast for Saturday and Sunday.
