Monaco has laid out its plans to host its Formula E and Historic Grand Prix events alongside the F1 grand prix next year, spreading the three races across five weeks.
Both the Historic and Monaco Grands Prix were cancelled this year as a result of the pandemic. The Automobile Club de Monaco subsequently moved to plan its events for 2021.
The Historic Grand Prix and Formula E races have been alternately run on a biennial basis since 2015.
However, it appears that all three events will be run within a five-week period next year, as confirmed in a statement issued by the club on Tuesday.
The Historic Grand Prix is scheduled for 23-25 April, followed by the Formula E race two weeks later on 8 May.
The Monaco Grand Prix will then take place on 20-23 May, thereby making it the first grand prix to have a provisional date confirmed for the 2021 season.
Christian Tornatore, the General Commissioner of the Automobile Club de Monaco, said the venue are prepared for the logistical complexities associated with the events.
“To organise three races in the space of one month will be a first for us all at ACM.
“The logistical side promises to be complex, but not impossible to manage. Because of the new constraints, we shall need to start setting up the track earlier than usual, at the end of February, instead of 15 March.
“We will then integrate the technical aspects, on and around the track, required by every category that will be involved.
“In order to achieve this, we will count on the experience and flexibility of all the persons involved, in order to achieve our objectives.”
