'There's never been interest from private sponsors. I've always said that its impossible to find sponsors in Russia for a project like F1. When there was support at the top level of government, this project worked commendably.'

Doesn't auger well for a Socha GP in 2014.

Looks like no money no seat for the Russian next season. Not
sure the new sponsors want petrov as a driver.
He arrived in F1 because of money. He will leave because of the
same reason...$$ Adios baby!
