The organizers of the Canadian GP confirm the withdrawal of their event from the 2020 calendar!

As Pole-Position announced earlier this morning, the Nürburgring circuit in Germany will take the initial place on the Formula 1 calendar for the Canadian Grand Prix. The organizers of the event held annually at the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve confirmed this this morning in a very brief announcement: "it is with great regret that we confirm that the 2020 edition of the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Canada will unfortunately not take place' have just indicated the organizers.

After having met the refusal of the local public health authorities to present the event with spectators on October 11, as planned, and faced with the impossibility of finding a way that satisfies Formula 1 and the local promoter to hold the race at behind closed doors, the decision was no longer in doubt. "Although it was difficult and disappointing to face such a conclusion, we have to accept it. The health and safety of our employees, volunteers, partners as well as that of our loyal spectators are and will always remain a priority "simply indicated François Dumontier, the promoter.

"We are disappointed not to be able to race in Canada this year, we know how much our fans will miss the always exciting race in Montreal. We want to thank the incredible Canadian Grand Prix team led by François Dumontier as well as the other contributors for their efforts and support during the last months and under difficult conditions. We can't wait to come back next year and we know our fans will be there, "said Chase Carey President, Formula One GM.

The next edition of the Canadian Grand Prix is ​​slated to take place in June 2021. Until then, Formula 1 will continue its 2020 season with closed-door races in Europe, followed by a season end in the Middle East.
