To say that Mercedes has always gone well at Russia’s F1 venue would be an understatement as the German manufacturer has prevailed in every single Russian Grand Prix held along the shores of the Black Sea since the event’s inclusion in the world championship in 2014.

“We’re looking forward to racing again in Russia, it is a circuit we’ve gone well at over the years and both our drivers have enjoyed great results in Sochi,” added Wolff.
“We’re hoping to continue our run of success in Russia but know that this year is an entirely different beast, and we’re expecting another intense weekend.
“Last year, this race was one of the first to welcome fans back to the grandstands and it was incredible to feel the passion and buzz of the crowds again.
“We’ve just been treated to fantastic support in Spa, Zandvoort and Monza, and this weekend will be no different.”
Hamilton will be gunning for a fifth career victory at Sochi while Bottas has won twice in Russia, the Finn collecting his second win in 2020.
“Our aim is to pull together a strong weekend, starting in FP1 and building one session at a time,” said Wolff.
“Lewis is in the tenth championship battle of his F1 career, and he is laser focused on what he needs to deliver in the next eight races.
“As for Valtteri, he’s driving better than ever, like we saw in Monza – and he will be flat out every weekend.
“There’s a calm determination about the team right now and the business end of a season, fighting for championships, is exactly what we enjoy the most.”
