Montreal's Formula 1 Grand Prix Is Officially Cancelled Again This Year

Despite Mayor Valérie Plante's pledge to find a solution for Montreal's Formula 1 Grand Prix to take place this summer, Quebec and Canadian government officials announced on Wednesday that the Grand Prix is cancelled once again this year. 

The event was scheduled for June 11-13.

Government officials cancelled the race over public health concerns that it could lead to COVID-19 outbreaks in Montreal.

"We're all disappointed to see that the Grand Prix won't be held this year because of sanitary conditions," said Mélanie Joly, minister of economic development.

There's good news, however, as a deal has been struck between the governments and F1's governing body to host the race in Montreal for the next two years and to keep the race in the city until 2031.
