The 2020 Monaco Grand Prix Cancelled
Formula 1 cancels The Monaco GP as the spread of COVID-19 remains a health concern for the FIA & the 2020 Formula 1 Season.
This comes as a surprise for many who thought the most safe event on the calendar was Monaco due to its historic connection to the roots of the sport. The race can be traced back to 1954 – only a handful of years after the inception of the Formula 1 World Championship established in 1950 itself. The final decision makers of this unique grand prix, The Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM), shoot down any notion that the race could proceed as it was originally reported on Formula1.com.
The cited the lack of flexibility on rescheduling the event as the main driver being so firm as to say “under no circumstances will it be possible to organise these events later this year.”
