Formula 1, Sochi GP at risk for Russia-Ukraine war

The Formula 1 GP which you should play at Sochi, Russiain September, is at risk following of the invasion of Ukraine by Russia and the international crisis that has arisen. For the moment, no one knows what the consequences of this conflict will be in the sports field but the cancellation of the Russian GP is possible.

For the moment, only a brief statement has leaked from the top of Formula 1 which essentially states that the current situation will continue to be monitored very closely. For the moment, however, there are no comments regarding the race that should take place in September.

Formula 1 is following developments closely and at this time has no further comment on the race scheduled for September. We will continue to monitor the situation closely.

At the moment, only from Sebastian Vettel has arrived a precise and tough stance about what is happening. The four-time world champion, speaking on his own, said he has no plans to race in the Russian GP in case it does.

In any case, it seems that the Formula 1 team principals will come together tonight to discuss what is happening and how to deal with this situation to make the right choice for the future. And for the Haas team, the situation is even more complicated. In fact, the team is sponsored by Uralkali, a Russian company linked to the Russian driver Nikita Mazepin who has made it known that he is only focused on the tests he is carrying out in Barcelona.

It is clear that even Formula 1 will sooner or later take a position on this very delicate issue. All that remains is to wait for some official communication to understand if the Russian GP in September will be held or not.
