Reports of F1 street race cancellations "completely wrong"
Formula 1 has denied speculation suggesting races in Monaco, Azerbaijan and Canada could once again be cancelled as "completely wrong".
Last year saw 13 races cancelled as the world struggled to adapt to the pressures of the coronavirus pandemic.
However, after racing began with the Austrian Grand Prix in July, F1 successfully completed a 17 race calendar with the sport putting in place strict social distancing and testing measures to ensure the safety of personnel.
Monaco, Azerbaijan and Canada were among the races cancelled last year, but speculation surrounding further cancellations this time around has been categorically denied by F1.
A spokesperson for the sport told GPFans Global: “We have set out the details of the revised 2021 calendar and there are no other changes. The suggestion street races will not take place are completely wrong.”
