Grand Prix of Brazil wants to race with public, despite coronavirus problems

The Brazilian Grand Prix was only on the Formula 1 calendar before November 15th, but the organisation is already announcing that there will be spectators in November, where in Europe they still choose to race without an audience.

Brazil is currently hard hit by the coronavirus with no less than 28,834 dead in the South American country. Meanwhile, almost half a million people have been infected with the virus in Brazil, but despite that, the organiser of the Formula 1 race at Interlagos is looking to the future positively.

Brazil wants to continue

''The preparations for the Grand Prix are on schedule and we are sure that the circuit will make for a fascinating race again. The event will take place without any problems and just in front of the public as it was planned before,'' Tamas Rohonyi said to Forbes.

Whether this will really be the case is questionable for now. Interlagos is located in Sao Paulo, which is currently the epicentre of the coronavirus in southern Marika. In spite of many infections in the largest city of South America, shops and shopping malls are allowed to open again, so they want to organize the race for the public.
