F1 ends long-term deal with Russian GP

F1 has purely and simply canceled its long-term contract with the Russian GP.

But this time, things go much further since F1 has just announced that it will no longer be going to Russia in the future!

F1 has terminated its contract with organisers of the Russian GP.

Last week Formula 1 confirmed it was not possible to compete in the country following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and cancelled the 2022 round.

That was duly ratified by the FIA on Tuesday on the grounds of force majeure.

On Thursday Formula 1 moved a step further and terminated the contract in its entirety.

More news : Fia opts against banning russian drivers – Mazepin can continue in F1

Formula 1 had been due to move the Russian GP to Igora Drive, near St. Petersburg, from 2023 but this will no longer happen.

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has been an influential figure in the existence of the grand prix.

He has attended the event on several occasions and has handed out the trophies on the podium, most recently in 2018.

The FIA on Tuesday condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, outlining its steps, but stopped short of banning competitors from Russia and complicit neighbour Belarus.

The FIA stopped short of banning drivers from Russia and Belarus – which has aided Russia in its war – from competition, saying they would be able to compete under the ‘FIA flag’, but national motorsport bodies such as those in the UK, Sweden and Finland have all explicitly suspended licence holders and teams from those countries taking part in competitions.

Drivers from those two countries can continue to compete under the FIA’s own flag, though several national bodies – including the UK – have already made a different decision and have banned entrants from the two countries.

The future of Russia’s Nikita Mazepin, funded by his father’s Uralkali firm, remains unclear.
