The cancellation of the Monaco F1 GP denied by the Principality of Monaco.
The Automobile Club de Monaco indicates that the three events scheduled for the spring in the Principality of Monaco will take place.
The Automobile Club de Monaco communicated on Monday that the major events planned for this year have not yet been called into question. The organizers were keen to respond to growing rumors that the Monaco Grand Prix, scheduled for May 23, could be canceled for the second year in a row.
The main concern is the preparations needed to ensure that the circuit is set up on time and ready to host Formula 1.
In 2021, the Automobile Club de Monaco plans to host three races on the ephemeral circuit of the Principality, since in addition to the traditional F1 Grand Prix, the Historic Grand Prix and the Monaco Formula E E-Prix are in the program.
Like all the other countries of the world, Monaco has put in place restrictive measures to fight against the spread of the coronavirus epidemic, including the obligation of a negative PCR test to enter the territory and the establishment a curfew. Despite this context, the organizers insist on maintaining the various events.
“Contrary to rumors circulated on certain websites and relayed by social networks, the Automobile Club de Monaco confirms that the F1 Monaco Grand Prix will take place from May 20 to 23, 2021,” said a statement. “The same is true for the Historic Monaco Grand Prix (23-25 Av. 2021) and for the Monaco E-Prix (May 8, 2021).”
