Montreal is not a… Monaco

Montréal n’est pas... Monaco

In the aftermath of the cancellation of the Grand Prix of Monaco, the F1 has not taken a decision about the fate that will be reserved for the following events originally scheduled for Baku, Azerbaijan and in Montreal on June 7 and 14, respectively.

The visit of a representative of the Newspaper at the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve on Friday morning revealed that the work for the installation of temporary infrastructure were not undertaken.

The permanent building, inaugurated last year, save a lot of time in the preparations for the Grand Prix of Canada.

According to our sources, it is usually from 30 march that employees put themselves to the task.

For the past two years, the assembly of some of the stands, stripped of their seats by security measure, is calculated at the end of the previous fall to, say, take the lead.

For the past two years, some of the temporary stands at the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve are partially assembled in the previous fall.

Less complex in Montreal

In addition, the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve might be a path temporarily as Monaco, the assembly is not a complex operation in Montreal.

In the streets of the Principality, it is not only a question of the tribunes for the spectators, but also the installation of safety barriers, the space devoted to the paddock and in the garages of the F1 teams.

It is for this reason that, in order to meet the time – the race was to take place on the 24th of may, the organizers of the race of Monaco have already started the preparation work.

The fact that the Grand Prix of Canada can now count on a permanent building for the directorate of the race, the press room and, in particular, the tv studios can save you valuable time.

All that to say that a postponement of the race in Montreal is likely, but a cancellation of a tourist event, the largest in Canada is much less so.
