Latifi understands the situation in Canada very well. The country is currently experiencing the third epidemic. He understands this decision and looks forward to playing the Giles-Villeneuve circuit next year.
“I know that the Canadian government and promoters worked very hard to organize this game. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 situation, this is not possible, and it is not very good at the moment. I believe that this is not only for the Canadian people, but also for F1. The health and safety of employees are the right decisions.”
“The good news is that the GP has been renewed for two years. Therefore, the future of racing is bright. Of course, I hope to attend many general practitioners in Canada. He concluded. Until then, all of you are safe.
