Asked at a Hungarian Grand Prix news conference how he would react if some reporters were denied entry for Baku's race debut next year, Tost said 'there must be a reason why the visa was denied. To be honest, I don't care about this. So we go there, we race there and that's it. It's a problem of journalist how to get visa," he replied.
