“Despite the latest rumours circulating on certain websites and social media, the ACM can confirm that the Monaco GP will take place from 20-23 May 2021,” the Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM) said in a statement

“The ACM also confirms the Grand Prix Monaco Historique (23-25 April 2021) and the Monaco E Prix (8 May 2021),” it added.

And now, senior Red Bull advisor Dr Helmut Marko has suggested that F1 fans could be allowed to attend this year’s Monaco GP:

“I heard that they are currently working on a concept to allow the race to take place with half of the spectators,” Dr Marko said.

Separately, he expressed his confidence in new F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali’s ability to lead the sport through another coronavirus-hit season.
