Russia will get F1 track license says Whiting

Sochi Autodrom Sochi has cleared the final hurdle ahead of Russia's controversial inaugural Grand Prix this year.

He also said that 30,000 tickets have been sold so far, while Ria Novosti quoted Vorobyov as saying one of the active Formula 1 race drivers will visit Sochi on the day after Sunday's Belgian Grand Prix.
