Minardi partnership agreement with Gazprom could give Formula One its first Russian driver

Formula One participant Minardi announced a partnership agreement with Gazprom on Friday in a three-year deal that could give Formula One its first Russian driver.

"This three-year agreement represents an excellent foundation on which to achieve the ambitious goal of bringing a Russian driver into Formula One as soon as possible," said Minardi owner Paul Stoddart.

A separate statement from Gazprom, which accounts for 94 percent of domestic gas production, said: "It will be a great responsibility for Gazprom to assist the first ever Russian driver to debut in the Formula One world championship."

No financial details of the deal were given.
