I would like to see Motorsport in Russia is developing on a continuous basis, and this is possible thanks to the efforts of the Russian automobile Federation and its President, my friend Victor Kiryanov.
Thanks to Motorsport we will be able to raise the issue of road safety in Russia, because here every year and car accidents killed 25 thousand people – a figure totally unacceptable. President Putin with Viktor Kiryanov always pay special attention to this issue, so thanks to Autosport we had the opportunity to bring this important subject to everyone.”
