"We just couldn't miss the chance to reach an agreement," the Omega Center company (promoters) general manager Oleg Zabara was quoted as saying by Sport Express daily. "We are really interested in a good partnership with the RAF for years."

"We're set to sign an official contract with RAF this week before sending an application to stage the 2014 race to the F1's ruling body, the FIA. We've already reached the agreement, which we now need to formalize."

Last month, Sochi promoters announced October 19, 2014, as the proposed date for their first race to be staged at the venue set to host the 2014 Winter Olympic Games.
