The Sochi Autodrom will as host of the Russian Formula 1 Grand Prix until at least 2025 after reportedly securing a five-year extension to their existing contract.
The semi-permanent circuit designed by Hermann Tilke, which winds its way around the former site of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, has played host to the Formula 1 World Championship since 2014 with an initial deal running until 2020.
According to quotes in the local TASS news agency attributed to Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak, a new contract has been renegotiated.
The country will host its forth Formula 1 race from April 28-30, which will also be the fourth round of the 2017 season.
