Bernie meets the Russians
BERNIE ECCLESTONE last week met with Grigorij Antjufeev, one of Moscow's deputy mayors to discuss the possibility of a Grand Prix in Moscow.
Ecclestone spent an hour in discussions with Antjufeev and admitted afterwards that Moscow is "unique". In the past Ecclestone has made it very clear that he is not interested in going to Russia because of the associations of the country with organized crime. However, if the Russians offer enough money it is possible that Ecclestone might be swayed.
