Campos Racing approaches another weekend in the GP2 Series with Grand Prix of Russia taking place at Sochi Autodrom, around the former Olympic complex located on the Black Sea coast and near the Caucasus Mountains. Both Campos Racing drivers, Indonesia´s Rio Haryanto and France´s Arthur Pic, are among the favorites for the antepenultimate round of the season.

Haryanto has achieved three race wins and another podium finish this year and, with still six races remaining, the Indonesian racer eyes to finish vice-champion to Stoffel Vandoorne. On the other hand Pic, claiming two podiums finishes at Spa and Monza, wants to finish the season in fine style and in addition, the Frenchman already finished third last year at the Russian track.
Pirelli has chosen medium and soft compounds for this weekend. Sochi has a low tire wear and degradation as the track contains a smooth surface.
