Russian Federation could have own F1 team

Russian Federation could have own F1 team

Former Red Bull driver Russian Daniil Kvyat is set to return to the sport next year with Toro Rosso while young hopes Artem Markelov and Nikita Mazepin are lined up as potential drivers of the future.

Kozak said he had noted the increased popularity of motor racing in Russian Federation and the growing interest in Formula One in particular.

Lewis Hamilton grabbed a controversial victory in the Formula 1 Russian Grand Prix at Sochi on Sunday to extend his lead in the championship over Sebastian Vettel to 50 points with just five Grands.

Motor racing's increasing popularity in Russian Federation could lead the country to set up its own F1 team in the future, according to deputy prime Minister Dmitry Kozak.

"The results of our conferences with automakers ought to be simply the creation of the Russian automotive "Formulation-1". We talked about plans until 2024, but I do not think that now it is possible. "I feel it is attainable to do in a decade" - quoted Kozak TASS.

The contract to include Russian Federation in the calendar of F1 racing for the 2014-2020 period was signed in 2010 in Sochi by then-Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and Formula One's former chief executive Bernie Ecclestone.

"It's great that the number of Russian drivers is increasing", said the 87-year-old. "That would be even better".
