2021 Canada GP axe only a formality now

Confirmation of Canada’s scratching from the 2021 Formula 1 calendar is now “only a formality”. Following reports that local health officials have decided the Montreal race should not go ahead even in a ‘ghost race’ format, Formula 1 declined to confirm the news. According to La Presse, Montreal’s public health body said it had “reservations” about holding the race due to the “fragile epidemiological situation”. “The fact that Montreal public health has issued an unfavourable opinion about the holding of the grand prix, even behind closed doors, is information that must be taken into account,” said Montreal mayor Valerie Plante.
