Red Bull Racing did not perform particularly well in the first session of the Russian GP weekend. Max Verstappen was third fastest, but drove several short stints on the red soft tyre. Karun Chandhok sees an interesting plan by Red Bull Racing.

Red Bull Racing believes the weather forecasts

Verstappen drove exclusively on the red tyres during FP1 in Sochi. Skysports analyst Chandhok sees that Red Bull Racing executed an interesting plan on Friday morning.

Via Skysports.com Chandhok says: "Interesting plan here from Red Bull to run the soft tyres. They've obviously decided they're going to believe the weather forecast for tomorrow and it's going to be wet all day"

"Perhaps they're more willing to burn up soft tyres today knowing they're not going to be needed tomorrow."
