Unlike the demonstration motor sport activities near the Kremlin, after a few days there will be a real racing competition in the tech race cars with electric motors. Preparations for the first ever race at the walls of the Kremlin will continue until the evening of 5 June.Racing Formula E is traditionally held in one day and will be available for viewing both on the stands and in the area of free access on Vasilevsky descent by pre-registration. Entertainment area eVillage will work from 800 a.m. and the first session of free practice will be held on the track at 815. On the starting grid pilots lined up at 1600. The full schedule for June 6 is available on the official website.The largest and most time consuming stage in the preparation of the event is to build a safe route. The route for the Moscow race Formula E was designed by Portuguese architect Rodrigo nez. The stage in Moscow was added to the calendar of the championship in January 2015 - and from that moment began active preparations for the race, which goes so far.In Moscow, in my opinion, turned out excellent layout - there are sections where you can accelerate, and there are complex plots - for example, U-shaped turn at the bridge. I think that the best view will be on the bridge. You can expect interesting events on turns 1, 2 and 11, where, most likely, the pilots will try to overtake," says Rodrigo nez.The pilot of the Trulli of Vitantonio Liuzzi acquainted with the route, shared his thoughts "I Have to say that the track seems pretty interesting and challenging, although there are some long straights and slow internal section is a good bunch of turns. There are also three or four sections of the highway where possible overtaking. Turn 1 and 3 seem to be most suitable for this area, and yet it should be noted narrow hairpin at turn 11. This step will definitely give you an impressive spectacle for the fans. Of course, the climate for the track not the most favorable, will surely be bumps, but the road is constructed in the heart of Moscow, and it's worth it."The total length of 2.3 km, and to make it safe in accordance with the requirements of the FIA had to make 1360 concrete blocks weighing 4 tons, more than 4.5 km of fencing metal mesh, brew 55 hatches on the roadway - and it's only 24 days - a period in which all of the necessary installation work. In total, in the preparation of the event is attended by over 2000 people.To ensure safety at the event this Saturday will be 1400 police officers and chop.

Moreover, many of them were only exact copies.As stated in the local police, the attackers were six. They came in two cars with foreign number, and one of them used to get inside, smashing the glass doors.
In an interview with Motorsport-Total Colin Kolles, acting as consultant deals Engavest with Caterham owners, commented on the situation in the team.
Question Tony Fernandes says that the new team owners do not pay their bills, is it
Colin Kolles Mr. Fernandez mistakenly asserts that we did not pay creditors and employees. All conditions were performed, all salaries were paid. Apparently, he believes that we must pay its employees Our staff is always on time get paid.
Question And creditors
Colin Kolles you Can ask suppliers - Renault, Pirelli, McLaren. We all paid.
Question is it True that in the summer the financial situation was so complex that the team wouldn't be able to hold the race at Silverstone
Colin Kolles Yes, it is. The team was preparing to close.
Question what exactly are you blaming Fernandes and his partners
Colin Kolles He sold the team, but has not provided us with promotion. This is the main problem. For several months he put the transfer on different occasions.
Question You have advised a group of investors Engavest SA -160what kind of company of the Caterham Group were acquired
Colin Kolles Only team company 1MRT. It consisted of several companies, including Caterham Sports Limited, but comentou sale published a statement on its liquidation, and she later moved to Romanian investors.
Question Yesterday, the Executive Director of Caterham Group chief mentioned Constantine Cojocaru you associated with
Colin Kolles Cojocar was one of the best Romanian players from the club Steaua. The essence of the question that we decided to abandon any connections with Caterham Group and Lividum. But we still plan to implement the project of the Romanian team of the Formula 1 season, 2016, for it takes certain steps.
Question But you deny the accusation that Cojocar was only your figurehead
Colin Kolles Yes.
Question Who now actually owns the team
Colin Kolles Shares are not transferred. From a legal point of view, the team 1MRT owned by Tony Fernandes and his partners, but he violated the terms of the contract. Imagine you bought a car, paid for it the whole amount, but the seller does not give you a registration certificate.
Question Crisis Manager says about debt 15 million pounds Caterham Sports Limited before the EXIM Bank.
Colin Kolles This may be true, but we are not the owners of Caterham Sports Limited and not associated with the EXIM Bank. Nothing more to add. If Fernandez took a loan of 15 million or laid the basis in Lipide, it's not our problem. The building is not ours.
Question Creditors argue that Caterham Sports Limited have ordered parts for the machines, but have not paid the bills, so, the crisis Manager has the right to arrest the machine.
Colin Kolles Machines not owned by Caterham Sports Limited, this property 1MRT. For the last three months 1MRT paid Caterham Sports Limited double-digit amount in millions of pounds.
The problem is that Fernandez built the circuit of the two companies 1MRT Malaysia and 1MRT UK. Later a second company was renamed Caterham Sports Limited, but some mistakenly believe that this is the team of Formula 1.
We held negotiations with creditors, explained to them the situation. With creditors, which produced parts for cars, we pay off as soon as we get the action command. After that they will be able to invoice 1MRT.
Question is it True that the staff base in Lipide can't get jobs
Colin Kolles Yes.
Question But the negotiations going
Colin Kolles Lawyers constantly communicate, but I was not involved in the negotiations. Actually, it's simple. If the crisis Manager claims that he belongs to the team of Formula 1 machinery and equipment, it is not true. It all belongs to 1MRT and Caterham Sports Limited was one of intermediate suppliers.
Question What should happen to the team arrived at the start in Austin
Colin Kolles Crisis Manager should understand that 1MRT and Caterham Sports Limited are independent of each other. Interestingly, the crisis Manager and Tony Fernandez used the same lawyer. Actually, if Caterham Sports Limited would have some relation to intellectual rights on the machine, it would be a direct violation of the Contract Agreement, according to which the designer with intellectual property rights, there can be only one.
Question is it True that you told the police on the Caterham Group chief lawyer
Colin Kolles Yes, it is. This gentleman broke open our file in Lipide, where he kept the information about violations of the former management team and Tony Fernandez.
Question is it True that the Treaty Agreement allows the command to skip three Grand Prix for 12 months without losing the right to participate in the championship If you miss three remaining races in 2015 will be able to start
Colin Kolles I Have not had the time to just to check it, but I heard about the rule of three Grand Prix.

After the race consultant promoters of the Grand Prix of Russia Richard Cregan, summing up the results of the race in conversation with a reporter nonf1.ru, praised the work of the team.
Question Richard, what are your impressions
Richard Cregan It was a fantastic event. Everything went very well, especially considering that it was the first Grand Prix. Only thanks to the efforts of all team members Sochi Circuit, all the marshals, volunteers, coordinated and efficient work, we were able to achieve such a result. Everything went great. Team, the guests are, all in all today was satisfied.
Question Could you compare the first Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi and here in Sochi
Richard Cregan I think the first Grand Prix in any country is a special event. Everywhere there are some unique features. But it's been a long time since then, as on the grid I was so positive feeling from happening. To me it just reminded about what happened in Abu Dhabi in 2009. I am very proud to be part of this event, this project. I'm incredibly lucky.
Question Many people say that from the point of view of the organization is almost nothing to find fault. We have not heard from anyone of the claims. The weekend went smoothly for you
Richard Cregan Yes, everything was going quite well. Of course, during the training there were certain situations that forced us to react. Now we need to sit down together to think about what went well, what didn't, what we need to improve, and then to correct weaknesses in preparation for next year. But I have no doubt that this Grand Prix will be one of the most important in Formula 1.
Question on Sunday, the stands were filled. Are you satisfied with how many fans came on Friday and Saturday
Richard Cregan Honestly, on Friday numbers were quite high. This is a good sign, because many had to take the day off from work to come to Grand Prix. While walking through the pit lane on Thursday was also great excitement. Came 22 thousand people. The figures are very good.
Now people know more about the Grand Prix. They already have the experience of visiting the race. They will want to come back, tell their friends. Let's continue to work, let's try to attract more people to the stands next year.
But the important thing is to give people a good service for the money that they paid. To organize such an event, which they might enjoy. It makes no sense to invite to the podium 150 thousand people, if you can't make them like it. We must ensure that all leave satisfied circuit.
Question What are the next steps Tomorrow another day at the office
Richard Cregan Tomorrow we start to do homework, to teach lessons. We will prepare a report, we will sit together with representatives of the different working groups and will analyze how it went. This process will take about two weeks, and on the basis of this report, we will establish if you will allow me the expression - "list of works", so that next year everything went even better.
Question What can you say about the possible race
Richard Cregan We have to be careful. I think everyone saw this camera on the helicopter, it's a great place. We don't want these shots to lose. The race, which started in daylight and ended in artificial light may be the most appropriate solution. In this case, we could show the terrain, the mountains, and to complete the race in the light of lights. You need to make sure we take the right decision, if you still will Adumim transfer start time. All saw that the TV picture was fantastic, and that I would not like to lose.
Question Question about possible migration of the race may still be considered
Richard Cregan I think may is an interesting option due to the fact that in Russia at this time, many national holidays. It can provide a large audience. It is necessary to find an optimal place in the calendar for us, and for Formula 1, and for Sochi.
Formula 1 is a platform that can enable to show the world your city, your country. We should use it to represent Sochi as the direction. The next step is direct flights to Sochi from Frankfurt, London, Abu Dhabi, so that people could come here always, and enjoy the time spent here.
Question what is the time between the races in Japan and Russia was only a week break, brought extra hassle
Richard Cregan Honestly, this is enough time. I think dual race difficult primarily because of the teams we needed to make sure that they were comfortable that all was ready for their arrival. We did this. Teams arrived a bit later due to the Typhoon, and of course, we must not forget about the terrible events of last week, about what happened with Jules Bianchi - we would love to hear positive news. We did all our best to meet the team more prepared.
Question How do you work with sports organizers Most of the marshals - the Russians, and experience in the Grand Prix they had no.
Richard Cregan Everything was okay. All did a good job. We have worked closely with CAMS, Australian Federation. They spent training, arrived on the scene and has done a great job here for the past year and a half. Definitely still have a lot to learn, but team sports organizers - it's a great group of specialists, through which in including today, everything went smoothly. They coped with the consequences of a major accident on the morning of the race GP3 as well - with the evacuation of cars in GP2. As I said, we should always explore all the details and strive to improve their work. But for the first year everything went fantastically well. Of course, we must not forget about the guards, railway, traffic police. We must thank all of you.

The Marussia driver Jules Bianchi, who got into an accident at the Grand Prix of Japan, delivered in a University hospital in the city of TSU mie Prefecture. Transportation to medical car with a police escort took less than ten minutes.
In the hospital later went athletic Director Marussia F1 Graham Loudon, head of Ferrari Marco Mattiacci and Felipe Massa. According to preliminary information, Jules received a serious head injury.
Earlier it was reported that the office of public Prosecutor of Switzerland opened a criminal case on the fact of theft of medical documents Michael Schumacher and attempts of their subsequent sale to third parties. During the investigation found out that the newsletter with the offer to buy a package of documents was with the IP address of one of the computers Swiss helicopter company Rega, which was to redirect Schumacher from Grenoble in Lozano transportation regulations, to the company were sent some documents that were used by the attacker for their own purposes. The police caught the suspect and put him in jail, but this morning he was found hanged in his cell. In fact initiated a new investigation, but so far the only explanation of what happened - the suicide.
"We are stunned and shocked", - such was a short comment Sabine Who, Manager Michael Schumacher, about the tragic incident that occurred yesterday in the police prison of Zurich. In conversation with journalists of the newspaper Bild, she confirmed that the family Schumacher didn't even know that the suspect in the theft medical record seven-time champion was detained.
The news that an employee of the Swiss company Rega, who is charged in the crime, on Wednesday morning, was found hanged in a solitary cell, instantly spread all European editions and television channels. According to the information of the police and the Prosecutor's office of Zurich, it was suicide, but, as always happens in such cases, initiated a detailed investigation into the circumstances of the incident.
It is reported that Swiss police detained the employee of the helicopter company Rega 5 August, he had a thorough interrogation, but the suspect, whose name remains anonymous, denied all allegations.

In contrast to several previous Grand Prix, at the beginning of the race weekend at Hockenheim at the Autodromo came not so many spectators. At yesterday's press conference head of Mercedes Motorsport Toto Wolff stated that concerned about this situation. According to the three-time champion Nicky Lawdy, the problem is much deeper than the loss of interest in racing.
Question Mr. Lauda, Formula 1 should be of interest to the German fans, Nico Rosberg and Mercedes lead in the championship, but stands in Hockenheim empty. Why
Niki Lauda In Formula 1 is a difficult period of change. The attitude of the audience to the sport has changed. Thanks to new technologies, exchange of information becomes more rapid. It is logical that the youth has other priorities than in his time with us. Everything is developing, and the Formula 1 is standing on the place.
Question What do you mean
Niki Lauda Major television companies, regardless of their title, still broadcast in normal mode. As before, they show two hours race and all. But I wonder how it is relevant.
Question What exactly you don't like
Niki Lauda I see that the youth is engaged in what it appears interest. If Sunday afternoon, good weather, they will not remain at home with his father, only to watch the race. Live broadcasts of Formula 1 lasts two hours. That's perfectly normal for a father, not satisfied with the rest of the family.
The problem is that until now there is no alternative. I can't sit on the beach and watch the highlights of the race on my smartphone. This is not possible. Today people want to have an overview of the race and to do what they enjoy.
Question do You think that the Formula 1 lends itself is not attractive enough
Niki Lauda Yes, you can say so. There is another problem there is no sense to speak only about the old times. Attraction Grand Prix is always associated with the drivers, not the machines that they are flying. But what happens We have a new generation of riders, some of which are totally unknown to the public. If they did not wear overalls, they would not pay attention. It happens even with me, although I insider. How would respond with normal audience
Question Why is this happening
Niki Lauda the fact that the racers very quickly passed through youth series and for the General public practically unknown. As a result, they no charisma, they just do their thing on the track. In addition, the Formula 1 too many rules - this prevents young, they are not developing as they want.
Question Formula 1 interfere with their own drivers
Niki Lauda Formula 1 requires overall control and regulation. The result racers feel great pressure. No one resents, if the leaders of the championship will decide that the product we no longer need. None racer says nothing about this. If this had happened in my time, I would've come to his bosses, saying "I will not sit behind the wheel".
Q Lewis Hamilton is considered the main rebel - in the UK it is appreciated for it.
Niki Lauda This is logical. But we want and should offer the audience more.
Question the Excessive number of rules, infirm racers and the lack of attractiveness. What worries you the most
Niki Lauda the fact that during the race fines awards something like racing police, involving ex-racers. During the race of Formula 1 drivers should not be punished. We are a race, not just go around the circle. Yes, we should not forget about security, but because of all these rules we have gone too far. In the end, it paralyzes the interest of the audience and brings the Formula 1 to the absurd. Obviously, this cannot be resolved overnight, but it should be done without any "IFS" and "buts". You need to leave riders in peace so they fought, not breaking the rules.
Question From riders need more independence.
Niki Lauda To the fore again should go drivers, not the bureaucrats.
Question What accounts for this phenomenon
Niki Lauda It happened due to uncontrolled development. According to Charlie Whiting, want FIA and the teams. But things went so far that the teams can talk with the Director of the race during the Grand Prix. If we continue in this spirit, the interest to the Formula 1 will disappear. A little more and it will be too late.
Question it seems that any delay may lead to loss of future.
Niki Lauda This is a dangerous situation, because the sponsors will decrease the interest in sport, if after 30 years of successful development of stagnation. We need to prevent this, and to understand how you can make progress in the shortest possible time.
However, all this intersects with the global financial problems in the Formula 1 reduction of spectators and the fall television ratings - this means a reduction of payments to the tracks and teams. We must act.
Question What do you suggest as a solution
Niki Lauda For business meets Bernie Ecclestone. He should analyse existing problems and make appropriate conclusions. I am sure that he also thinks so.
Question What could be the role of the FIA
Niki Lauda Jean Todt tries to control different interests and problems. He had spent enough time in Motorsport, so knows trend and understands that something has to be done. Thanks to modern technology, Formula 1 can go back to basics. I'd love it.
