In September 2008, it was revealed that work was to begin on a Formula 1 circuit to be located in Fediukino City, Volokolamski District of Moscow Province; approximately 77 kilometers away from Moscow, being designed by Hermann Tilke. Known back then as the “Moscow race track”, the track was designed to host both Formula 1 and Moto GP races.
Vitali Petrov became the first Russian Formula 1 driver in 2010; when he joined the Renault team, adding new impetus to the project. Bernie Ecclestone expressed his desire to see Formula 1 on his trip to Russia
on a circuit near Moscow or in the spa town of Sochi and who later secured the rights to organize such a race. The plans were announced in what would be a 5.5 kilometer circuit around the Olympic Village where the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics will take place; on the Black Sea coast; making an on-site agreement to house it for seven years, from 2014 to 2020.
