The next Winter Olympics will happen in Sochi, Russia from February 7-23, 2014. Sometime after that, barring any delays, a portion of the Sochi Olympic Park will be turned into the Sochi Olympic Park Circuit, a 3.65-mile track for the first Russian Grand Prix in 100 years (the last of two Formula One grands prix were held in St. Petersburg).

As we've come to expect from the Infiniti Red Bull team, it recently sent Sebastian Vettel and brand ambassador David Coulthard to the unfinished venue to run the route in Infiniti M sedans and offer some impressions. With average cornering speeds above 62 miles an hour, Coulthard called it a fast street circuit in the Monaco vein. You can watch them try it out – yes, that's Vettel gone airborne above – and avoid a "White Van Man" in the video below.

      I want to be the Red Bull Ambassador. Not actually responsible for winning anything, but you get to drive awesome machines in cool places.

      I have driven this Infiniti M and I tell you it drives like a boat. The steering feel and feedback is flimsy. The ride is subpar and the handling makes me swoon side to side on turns. Horrible car. Sorry Infiniti this car really is pathetic. I prefer my G35 sport coupe. The GS350 F-sport is also worlds better in handling and is above the BMW 5.

      Its so funny seeing Infiniti's driven like that... Infiniti really needs a real sports car so they can drive that during all these exhibitions they seem to like to put on now.

      You know, top down views of racetracks are TYPICALLY very artsy and good-looking, but this track was definitely hit with the fugly stick. Not saying it won't be a great track offering great racing, but my does it look terrible in the schematic. I know that's partly because it's going around a bunch of buildings, but still.

      A pair of M37 Sedans? Seriously? They couldn't pull out a couple of new Q50's for this romp? Marketing fail, IMO.

      It seems like this video could have been so much better. Trying to figure out why they edited it this way and why they didn't really push the envelope. Instead it was a commercial for someone that lives on a dirt road.

      think more they are working on the suspension, or something to do with handling.
