The RAF announced yesterday that as a result of the row they had missed the deadline to submit their application to stage the 2014 race with F1’s ruling body the FIA.
The Sochi GP’s only chance now of making next year’s calendar is for the RAF to persuade the FIA there was a ‘force majeure’ reason for missing the cut off point.
Last month, Sochi promoters announced October 19, 2014 as the proposed date for their first race to be staged at the venue for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games.
