Also absent is Hermann Tilke, the F1 circuit architect who was in charge of the design of the Sochi layout around the Olympic Park. “Unfortunately, I could not fly to Sochi,” the German told Russian news agency Tass. “I would very much like to be in Sochi, but I think that after the coronavirus there will be a calmer period again as before and I will happily come back.
