Turkey could lose F1 race says FIA

(GMM) A spokesman for F1's governing body has admitted that Turkey could lose all FIA-sanctioned events, including its formula one grand prix at Istanbul, because of a political storm involving the podium ceremony two weeks ago.

''The Turkish motor sport federation also risks being expelled from FIA,'' the spokesman, suggesting that the Paris-based federation run by Max Mosley was furious about having its political neutrality compromised, was quoted as saying by 'Agence France-Presse' at Monza.
