Carey on GP Canada: We will arrive later this year

The Grand Prix of Canada is officially postponed. This is the ninth race on the calendar that will not take place as planned. The season now seems to open in France on June 28th, but also that race is still in doubt.

Difficult decision

The organization of the Grand Prix in Canada says it was a difficult decision. "Over the past month, we have been in constant communication with Formula 1 and representatives from the city of Montréal, Tourism Montreal and both provincial and federal governments", a statement of the GP organisation read. "We have heard the directives issued by public health officials and as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic are following the expert guidance provided by the authorities."

The race is not completely cancelled, the organization in Montreal is looking for a new date for the race. At the latest the race can be held in October because of the severe winters in the city. Chase Carey is sure there will be racing in Canada this year.

Carey supports decision

"We have been working closely with our friends at the Canadian Grand Prix over the past few weeks and support them in taking this necessary decision to ensure the safety of fans and the F1 community", Carey says on the Formula 1 website. "We always look forward to travelling to the incredible city of Montreal and while we will all have to wait a bit longer, we will put on a great show when we arrive later this year."
