Ecclestone still welcome at Russian GP says promoter

Bernie Ecclestone is still welcome at the Russian GP, organisers of the Sochi race have announced. Indeed, Sochi promoter Alexey Titov told Tass news agency on Wednesday that Ecclestone will be welcome at the Russian GP next month. “Despite the public conflict, we must always remember about the relationships with people,” Titov said. Titov, however, said the Lewis Hamilton-championed kneeling protest in support of Black Lives Matter will not be forbidden at Sochi. “We are sure that the fans share this philosophy and will support their favourite drivers, for whom the Russian GP will be the first race of the season with spectators in the stands,” added Titov.
