SOCHI, October 12. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin, who watched Russia’s first ever Formula One Grand Prix racing in Sochi, was quite content with the event, Formula 1 chief Bernie Ecclestone told TASS on Sunday.
He said he was sitting next to Putin during the race and saw that the Russian President was satisfied.
Earlier on Sunday, Putin awarded the winner of the race, Britain’s Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton, a team Mercedes pilot, finished first in the race held in the Russian Black sea resort city of Sochi.
Russia’s Daniil Kvyat from Toro Rosso team finished in the 14th position.
Russian Grand Prix in Formula 1 championships was almost ideal, Charlie Whiting, the Formula 1 race director at the International Automobile Federation told TASS on Sunday. He pointed out the high level of organization, adding that although Sochi had a new race track and none of the competing racers knew it well enough, there had been no emergency situations.
The Russian Grand Prix was held at the racing track located near the Olympic Village in the coastal area of Sochi. The contract to include Russia in the calendar of F1 racing for the 2014-2020 period was signed in 2010 in Sochi by then-Prime Minister of Russia Vladimir Putin and F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone.
