Russian Formula 1 organizer expects to maintain grandprix

Ticket sales for Russia's Formula 1 contest is in full swing in spite of Wadas sanctions against Russia.

the Organizers of the Formula 1-the song contest in Sochi in Russia do not expect to lose the title in 2020 or subsequent years.

It says race promoter, Rosgonki, in a statement, according to Russia Monday, was penalized by The International anti-doping agency (Wada).

Russia has been sanctioned to manipulate with the provided data on the sportsmen and sportswomen dopingresultater.

As part of the punishment, Russia should not hold major international sporting events in four years, unless it is for practical or legal reasons is impossible to move the hosting to another country.

But according to Rosgonki reckon the Formula 1 organizers not to be hit, because the contract was signed back in 2010 and runs to 2025.

And because it is "legally and technically impossible" to move the song contest for a second place the next year.

We are sure that The Russian Grand Prix will be held in 2020 and the following years, and we invite everyone to Sochi. Ticket sales are in full swing, stresses the promoter in the opinion.

the Race has since 2014 been held at the olympic facilities in Sochi. In the year won the british world champion, Lewis Hamilton, the song contest in Russia.

The International Motorsportsforbund (FIA), which organizes the Formula 1, is recognized by The International Olympic Committee (IOC).

Russia has not yet taken a position on whether the Wadas decision must be appealed to The International court of arbitration for sport (CAS).
