Doping ban won’t stop Russian GP says promoter

Organisers of the grand prix at Sochi are pressing ahead with preparations for the race in September, despite Russia’s anti-doping ban from international sport. Sochi GP promoter Alexey Titov told Tass news agency that he is still in talks with the FIA about how the anti-doping bans will affect the September race. However, Titov said it is clear that the anti-doping ban will affect the Russian GP in certain ways. “Obviously our anthem will not be played at the beginning of the grand prix,” he said. Titov also told the Ria Novosti news agency that the anti-doping ban cannot compel race organisers or the FIA to drop the official name of the Russian GP. Everything is clearly stated that we are called the grand prix of Russia,” Titov said.
