Russian racing can thrive amid Ukraine conflict

Motorsport in Russia can still thrive even amid the Ukraine conflict, Russia’s first Formula 1 driver Vitaly Petrov insists. But even amid those and other restrictions imposed on Russians, including the total cancellation of the Sochi race, Petrov says Russian motorsport can still thrive. “We have our own tracks, we have our own cars, so our motorsport does not stand still,” the former Renault driver, who is now a top official at the Russian automobile federation, said. Russian drivers are still able to race in Europe as ‘neutral athletes’, but many proud countrymen have refused to do so, Petrov explained.
