The Mercedes team chief Toto Wolff warns before the race in Russia that the Sochi track will also be more suited to the Ferrari with its configuration of long planes.
After Ferrari had been waiting for the first year's victory all the way to the Spa Francorchams, the Maranell team has been celebrating in the last three races.
Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff points out that Ferrari will be the first favorite in Sochi as well.
The plains in Sochi are much longer than those in Singapore. Ferrari will be able to take full advantage of the power of its powertrain and it will be difficult to beat them. We anticipate that they will gain a lot of time in the first sector, which we will try to make up for in turns. The key to success in Russia lies in the optimal car settings and we will do everything we can to fight for the top again.
