Portugal reducing spectator numbers for F1 race

Portimao is having to reduce the number of spectators allowed into the circuit this weekend. Lusa, Portugal’s largest news agency, quoted circuit director Paulo Pinheiro as saying that while 46,000 tickets for the F1 race went on sale, many fans are unlikely to actually attend due to the latest coronavirus developments. Pinheiro says he is expecting that document on Monday, with Formula 1 scheduled to race this weekend. But he explained that even if the eventual crowd number is lower than the amount of tickets sold, there are “several withdrawals” from international spectators “who either failed to travel or are afraid” of the virus.
