Russia has extended the contract for hosting the country’s Formula One Grand Prix in Sochi for four years to 2025, the race promoter said.
“The financial details of the deal are confidential but I can assure that we’re completely satisfied with the conditions,” Sergei Vorobiev, Russian Grand Prix promoter, told AFP on Monday.
The first Russian Grand Prix was held in Sochi in 2014 and the previous deal was set to run out in 2021.
This year’s race is due to take place on April 30 and Vorobiev said he is hoping the crowds will flock to the event.
