Force India driver Sergio Perez Tuesday said he is looking forward to the inaugural Formula 1 Russian Grand Prix to be held at the Sochi Autodrom on Sunday.

"I'm really looking forward to the race in Sochi. It's a country that will be totally new for me and so it's exciting to go there for the first time. I will feel like a tourist looking around the city," said Perez.

"The location of the track inside the Olympic park is very unusual. If I get the opportunity I will definitely explore a bit. From the photographs I've seen it looks to be a very impressive facility. There are some long straights, some tight corners, and it will feel like a street circuit because the walls are close to the track in a lot of areas."
