Bridge is okay but it was an acceleration point. Old Bridge. Now THAT was awesome.

1. To get to Turkey even Russian don't need do much - just something like $10-visa on arrival (and Russians need visas for majority of countries). For European to get to Russia... it is a very, very different story :lol:
2. Even these days (before Olympic games and F1) it is cheaper for Russians to go to Turkey, Bulgaria and even Western Europe for holidays (not even talking about service). It won't be cheap for Europeans to be there.

I mostly agree, but some remarks :O
Russia is big country, so for me (and I live in Moscow) it will be cheaper to go to Turkey, Hungary and even to Monaco, I think ))) But for some other people who live in that region it can be a good chance to visit a GP or for those who don't like to travel abroad.
I have 2 problems:
1) What races we will lost by 2014? It could be Turkey and China but to my mind there're good tracks, Valencia and Singapore are much worse but they rather will stay in the calendar.
2) I fear that Russian GP will be like Turkey – success in first year but then… who knows? I don't think we have so many F1 fans here which will spent a big amount of money every year.

I agree with you Lunna, of course for many Russian people it is a good chance to see F1 in real life (if the ticket price is good, of course). I am afraid that those guys will try to create 'Russian Monaco' with costs through the roof...

point 2 - you might be on something here.
