Monaco organisers defiant events will go ahead as scheduled

Monaco organisers defiant events will go ahead as scheduled

The Automobile Club de Monaco has issued a defiant statement insisting its triple bill of major events will go ahead as planned despite recent reports to the contrary.

Speculation surfaced over the weekend that Formula 1 was poised to cancel a trio of street races in Monaco, Baku and Montreal due to ongoing concerns over the Covid-19 pandemic.

Monaco was understood to be particularly vulnerable given the lead time required to ready the street circuit, notably as it will also stage both the Historic Grand Prix and the E-Prix this year.

In the recent past, those two events have alternated, but organisers opted to pencil in both this year after last year's cancellation of the Historic GP.

With that event being staged in late April, ahead of the E-Prix on May 8 and the GP on May 20-23, it is likely the track preparation work will be required to start in mid-February.

The ACM, via its Twitter page, has made clear all three races will be staged.

Its tweet read: "Despite the latest rumors circulating on certain websites and social media, the @ACM_Media can confirm that the #MonacoGP will take place from May 20th to 23rd, 2021.

"The ACM also confirms the #GrandPrixMonacoHistorique (April 23rd-25th 2021) and the #MonacoEPrix (May 8th 2021)."

At the weekend, F1 made clear that the reported cancellation of its street races was "completely wrong".
