Monaco Grand Prix organisers insist race will retain spot on F1 calendar

The street circuit’s contract ends this year but the president of the Automobile Club de Monaco, Michel Boeri, has stated that he is confident a new deal will be agreed. With a season capped at 24 races, there is increasing pressure on meetings to justify their position. With this year’s race scheduled for 29 May, Boeri maintained that Monaco would retain its spot. Speaking to race marshals this week, he said: “It was implied that the fees required were too excessive for Monaco and that the grand prix would no longer be held. “The primary function of the safety car is not outright speed, but the safety of the drivers, marshals and officials,” they said. “The speed of the safety car is therefore generally dictated by race control, and not limited by the capabilities of the safety cars.”.
