Bernie has love for Russian GP

Russia could join the Formula One circus in 2010, according to F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone. Ecclestone is set to travel to St Petersburg next weekend where he'll meet the city's mayor to discuss the possibility of building an F1 circuit on the outskirts of the historic city.

Russian president Vladimir Putin is also expected to be present at the meeting, with Ecclestone hoping to have Russia on the calendar by 2010.

"Nothing is done yet but this could be an interesting development for the sport," the 77-year-old told the Mirror.

"We'd like to get it in the calendar as soon as we can but that depends on them. It's down to how long it takes them to get the circuit ready."
