Arrows can't build Moscow grand prix

Russia's hopes of staging a Grand Prix in Moscow have suffered yet another set-back, this time from Russian president Vladimir Putin. The Russian president says that he would rather see the race held in St Petersburg than Moscow, fuelling rumours that the location may switch.

St Petersburg's mayor Vladimir Yakovlev has now launched a rival bid for the F1 race. Moscow has run into trouble concerning it's own bid, the engineering firm paid to create the track is owned by TWR, the same company as the troubled Arrows team.

The championship is set to arrive in Russia in 2004, but so far there are no plans for a location, let alone building work under way
