The Mayor of Montreal, Valérie Plante, commented on the record of the Canadian Formula One Grand Prix, which has been threatened due to health measures, indicating that she wants to be cautious with taxpayers’ money.
However, the mayor does not seem to be keen to increase the additional amount.
She said at a press conference after the Montreal Projet conference: “We hope that the Grand Prix will be held in Montreal.” But for me, it is necessary to ensure that taxpayers’ money is used properly. We are in discussions with the Quebec government and the federal government to understand the situation. For me, the important thing is that the Canadian Grand Prix stays here. “
“If it is not possible this year, he absolutely must be there next year because we care about it. Before making a decision, we will discuss with other partners.”
The Canadian Grand Prix is scheduled to be held at Notre Dame Cathedral on June 13. It seems that the possibility of postponing the selection has not been considered, because this year’s F1 calendar has set a record with the planned 23 events.
In addition, Motorsport, a professional racing website, believes that F1 had already developed a contingency plan when it was cancelled. The Turkish Grand Prix will make a short comeback for the second time after receiving help in last year’s top motorsports.
Recall that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian Grand Prix has been cancelled in 2020.
