Monaco to hold three Grand Prix in one month

After the cancellation of the 2020 Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix and the 2020 Monaco Historic Grand Prix due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM) has decided that it will organise three Grand Prix in 2021, in the space of one month.

The 12th edition of Monaco Historic Grand Prix, initially planned for May this year, will now be held from 23-25 April 2021, followed by the 4th Monaco E-Prix (May 8), and the 78th Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix (May 20-23).

“To organise three races in the space of one month will be a premiere for us all at ACM,” said Christian Tornatore, the general commissioner of Automobile Club de Monaco.

“The logistical side promises to be complex, but not impossible to manage. Because of the new constraints, we shall need to start setting up the track earlier than usual, at the end of February, instead of 15th March.

“We will then integrate the technical aspects, on and around the track, required by every category that will be involved. In order to achieve this, we will count on the experience and flexibility of all the people involved, in order to achieve our objectives.”
