Ecclestone: We will be there

Bernie Ecclestone insists Formula 1 will be in Russia later this season despite the ongoing crisis.

Although earlier this week the Sochi track passed inspection by FIA race director Charlie Whiting, there were still doubts over the grand prix.

Those related to Russia's political situation and the ongoing conflict between pro-Russian separatists and Ukraine.

But despite that and countries imposing sanctions on Russia, Ecclestone says Formula 1 will race in Sochi in October.

"We have a contract," he said.

"Our friends there are happy with the contract, we are happy. We will be there.

"If people have arguments with Russia, maybe they have, but we haven't got any."

The inaugural Russian Grand Prix takes place on October 12.
