Despite at least a decade of decline in popular sentiment, Formula 1 is still going strong when you consider the amount of money being funneled into and through the series each season. Soon, F1's reach will grow a little larger, with a new track in Russia joining the schedule.
Called Sochi Circuit, the track is still under construction, but Red Bull/Infiniti driver and three-time world champ Sebastian Vettel and former F1 driver (among many other things) David Coulthard spent some time on the partially completed track recently.
When complete, the circuit will be 3.7 miles long, making it the third longest on the F1 calendar behind Spa-Francorchamps and Silverstone.
