Although still under construction and clearly covered in mud, triple-world champion Sebastian Vettel became the first F1 driver to experience the Sochi Olympic Park Circuit in Sochi Russia.

He was accompanied by David Coulthard, and the pair lapped the track in Infiniti FX Vettel Edition among other vehicles.

Once complete, the 3.7-mile Sochi Olympic Park Circuit will be the third longest circuit on the Formula One calendar behind Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium and Silverstone in Britain. The Olympic Park will also host the 2014 Winter Olympic Games.

Commenting on his experience in Russia, Vettel said: "It is a great privilege to be the first Formula One driver to visit the new Sochi venue. After trying a section of the track I can already see it will be a fun circuit to drive in a Formula One car and the rest of the venue is very impressive. I'm really looking forward to coming back here for the Grand Prix next year."

Russia's inaugural F1 race is scheduled after the 2014Winter Olympics, with the circuit's integration into Olympic Park infrastructure being a key feature of the venue.
