Fernando Alonso is hoping that the race at Russia will not be a repeat of the controversial rained-out Belgian GP.

Why it matters: The Sochi Autodrom is expected to see rain, which could potentially result in a repeat of the rained-out Belgian GP.


  • The Sochi Autodrom is expected to be hit by rainstorms which will see their peak at around midday of Saturday, and continue throughout Sunday.

What they had to say:

  • “I think it’s a very flat track, there are no elevation changes here, so the water stands quite a lot on track,” Alonso said.
  • “For Sunday, fingers crossed it’s not that wet, or not raining too much, because the visibility will be really bad and we don’t want to see anything like Spa.”
