    Cool. Thanks olegg

    Shame it wasn't a better race and the Russian driver finished last. Maybe with Kvyat returning, we will see a few deserving performances.

    It is a pity of course that Sirotkin season is failed.
    For some reason the team regularly chooses a losing strategy for him.
    But in 4 support races Russian racers Mazepin and Markelov were able to show more.
    They managed to add to saturday and sunday races of support a little more intrigue

    Well, Sirotkin has showed some speed this season. How big is the local Russian racing scene now? Do they have the supporting junior series and the attendance to feed a group of fast and experienced young drivers into F1?

    Affirmative answer.
    As elsewhere in the world of children's karting school is in many cities.
    There are various monoseries that fall into adolescence through karting.
    But the most consistent program at the moment has the company SMP Racing,
    which purposefully selects talents with the arrival of children in karting and begins
    to support talents in international series.
    SMP Racing Team has a team in GP3, Formula 2 and 3, WEC.

    olegg Is there any significant open wheel series in Russia, or do they have to travel to western Europe to run in feeder series?

    Upto 2015 was Russia Formula-Master serie wich was like european serie Formula-Abart.
    Now is active only SMP Formula 4.
    It is national series agreed with FIA structure.

    Hamilton wants "not good for racing" Sochi reversed

    Perhaps if half the field drove the other way around the track it might make it more interesting to watch.

    Season 2018 overtakings:
    - "good for race"
    Australia - 5
    Barcelona - 13
    Canada - 13
    Hungary - 21
    Singapore - 6
    - "not good for race"
    Sochi - 32

    The number of fights and overtaking in support races at the Sochi autodrom
    shows that the problems have desicions.
    Of course, a big role in the "racing reputation" circuit made Pirelli with
    a very conservative choice of tires for a very smooth surface.
    Hence were minimal the number of tactical schemes and pit-stops.
    But if they can make changes to the configuration,
    which will add attractive for Formula 1 races on this circuit, it will be great.

    It's not the circuits: it's the cars.

    Here we go again :)
