Formula 1 have released a statement regarding the future of the Russian Grand Prix after Russian forces launched a major military assault on neighbouring Ukraine.

It comes amid pressure growing on sporting organisations to boycott Russia, which is set to stage a number of major events over the coming months.

UEFA, football's leading European body, have already been urged by the UK government to find a new venue for May's Champions League final, set to be held in St. Petersburg, and it was only a matter of time before attention turned to September's Russian Grand Prix.

Although the event is still more than seven months away, Formula 1 have released a statement on the matter.

The statement reads: "Formula 1 is closely watching the very fluid developments like many others and at this time has no further comment on the race scheduled for September.

"We will continue to monitor the situation very closely."
