Formula 1 won't refund Russian GP entry fee

Formula 1 has reportedly opted not to give Russia’s entry fee back to race promoter Rosgonki, and VTB, the Russian state-owned bank that sponsored the event, will not be reimbursing them. F1 was set to hold the ninth Russian Grand Prix in Sochi this season having made its first appearance there in 2014, the same year that the Winter Olympics were hosted there.
