THE BIG NUMBER: 60


There are 60 points up for grabs at WTCR VTB Race of Russia with six drivers still in contention to win the 2021 WTCR − FIA World Touring Car Cup title.





HOW IT WORKS AT WTCR VTB RACE OF RUSSIA




Qualifying: WTCR VTB Race of Russia begins with two free practice sessions of 45 minutes and 30 minutes duration, followed by a single qualifying session. This is split into three stages (Q1, Q2 and Q3) and includes two elimination periods (Q1 and Q2). Q1 lasts 20 minutes with the fastest 12 progressing to Q2 where they get 10 minutes to battle for the five spots on offer in Q3. The quintet to progress to Q3 get one lap, one at a time to chase the pole position. Points are handed to the fastest five in Q1 and Q3 on a scale of 5-4-3-2-1.


Grids: Race 1 uses a partially-reversed grid with the fastest 10 in Q2 lining up in reverse order, meaning the driver who finishes Q2 in P10 starts Race 1 from pole position, P9 in second and so on. The drivers who were P11 and P12 in

Q2 go next followed by the drivers eliminated after Q1. The Race 2 grid uses the combined qualifying order after Q3.




Points:


*The fastest five drivers in Qualifying Q1 and Q3 score points as follows: 5-4-3-2-1.


*The top 15 classified finishers score in each race as follows: 25-20-16-13-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1


*The same scoring system apples to the WTCR − FIA World Touring Car Cup for Teams and the FIA WTCR Junior Driver Title, although WTCR Junior points are not awarded following Q3


*WTCR Trophy drivers score as follows: 10-8-5-3-1, 1 point for the fastest qualifying lap, 1 point for the fastest lap in each race






TYRE TALK WITH SEBASTIAN TRINKS, GOODYEAR EVENT LEADER WTCR



“Unfortunately, it’s already the last event of this season but it’s going to be a good one and we will also have some wildcards attending, which is also good for the show.


In general it’s a Formula One circuit with high standards and facilities on a very high level. There are some fast corners but also some 90-degree corners where you need good braking and good traction so it’s going to be two interesting races.


Not many of the drivers were there before so a lot of them have learned the track in a digital way. I visited Sochi in 2016 when it was still quite new with new asphalt and I expect the grip to be very good.


The weather forecast suggests medium temperatures of around 15 degrees but there’s a possibility of rain or no rain. We’re looking forward to finishing the season on a high.”



All drivers use the single specification Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperSport tyre. For WTCR VTB Race of Russia, each driver has 12 dry-weather slick tyres allocated and can carry over 10 from previous events. In addition, 16 wet-weather tyres are available.
