I suspect its got a lot to do with russian money.

russian drivers, businesses, sponsors, drivers and teams having assets invested in russian companies.....it will be an absolute spiders web trying to work out whats where and how much.

Trying to untangle this and firm up an entry list that can actually commit to the race....given that more sanctions on individuals and businesses are on the way could get messy.

....i guess we will soon see where the finances for racing is coming from in a few cases!

Beyond G-Drive, who do we reckon could be impacted?

Not seen SMP anywhere since BR departed. Not a lot of Russian drivers on the grid.

Not sure, but there are a lot of companies out there’s with potential Russian interests….if Peugeot were in, Total would be one, but they’re not now.

Not quite as simple as X company has a Russian name

Suppose we will find out once the list is announced.

AstonGeoff should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
They may also have been waiting for a statement from the FIA on how they were going to handle Russian drivers and teams. And that has been made and is rather poor imho, that fence must be soooo uncomfortable!

I suspect based on this statement Total is unlikely to be kicked out of supplying the field.
Other companies? I suspect we're unlikely to see anything with G-Drive or SMP written on the side.

Believe they have been on the side of the AF Corse ferrari lately, not dominant sponsors but along the doors I thought but may have been a couple years

Didn't SMP leave international motorsport because of sanctions against Rotenberg brothers? They are still big factor in Russian national racing scene.

Yeah. I think there's one or two kicking about GTWC that's a full livery of that, but the logo appears on quite a few AF Corse cars.

Not going to be a showstopper for a team like AF Corse is it you'd have thought.

As soon as the ACO said 'later this week' I took that to mean Friday. Will be interesting to see if we get news tomorrow.
