Russian GP moves from Sochi to St. Petersburg in 2023

Formula 1 has announced that the Russian GP will take place for the last time in Sochi next year. The following year, the F1 race moves to Saint Petersburg.

The Sochi Autodrom has hosted the Russian GP since 2014. The circuit crosses the site where the 2014 Winter Olympics were hosted. All F1 races so far at the Sochi Autodrom have been won by a Mercedes driver.

However, from 2023 the Russian GP will move to Saint Petersburg where it will be driven on Igora Drive. Igora Driver is a circuit about 50 kilometers from Saint Petersburg and was redesigned by Hermann Tilke.

Tilke has designed several new F1 circuits or redesigned existing circuits in recent years and is known as the house designer of Formula 1.

Last year Igora Driver received a so-called ‘FIA Grade 1 license’ which is required to organize an F1 race.
