As reported on FeedMeF1

Organisers of the Turkish grand prix have just thirty days to pay a $5 million fine imposed on Tuesday morning by the FIA’s World Motor Sport Council. The revelation means that, despite escaping the ultimate sanction for politicising the podium ceremony at the Istanbul event last month, the race scheduled for August 26 next year is still in doubt.

”We’ve only got a very short period to find the money,” track manager Baran Asena acknowledged to British broadcaster ITV, ”but we are sure our race, which has been one of the most popular additions to formula one, will stay on the calendar.”
