Last week, it was rumoured that officials were reluctant to start work on the circuit when the races were in doubt but the organisers, the Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM), today denied the suggestions.
“Despite the latest rumours circulating on certain websites and social media, the ACM can confirm that the MonacoGP will take place from May 20th to 23rd, 2021,” it said on social media.
“The ACM also confirms the Historic Monaco Grand Prix (April 23rd-25th 2021) and the Monaco EPrix (May 8th 2021).”
Work on the circuit usually begins in March this year, but the hosting of three races in the space of a month has forced an early start to the build.
Last year was the first since 1954 that Monaco was absent from the Formula 1 calendar, following the cancellation of the Grand Prix, and the Historic event as a result of the Covis-19 pandemic.
