Rosgonki, which we are the founders of, will operate two venues [in Sochi and St. Petersburg]. We are discussing with Sirius, who has become the owner of this entire territory [where the Russian Grand Prix is held], the development of motorsport in Sochi. Perhaps we will create a world-class karting center there, - said Andrey Kostin. - As for Formula 1, it will be [in Sochi] until 2023. Then the government of the Leningrad Region should provide certain infrastructure works, but these issues will be resolved.”

“This year's Grand Prix will be held in Sochi at the end of September. With 50% occupancy [of stands],” added Andrey Kostin.
