The Formula 1 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix will take place behind closed doors for the second consecutive year.
Formula 1 is planning to bring fans back to the races progressively, but the current state of the Covid-19 pandemic in Italy forces the organizers to prohibit the entrance of fans to the venue.
The Grand Prix of Emilia Romagna (Now renamed to Formula 1 Pirelli Gran Premio del Made in Italy e dell’Emilia Romagna 2021) will take place next month, on the 16th and 18th of April in Imola. It will be the first race of two that’ll be held in Italy, with the second one being in Monza on the 12th of September – which means it could host fans should the situation in the country improve.
The first Grand Prix to announce a race behind-closed-doors this year was Portugal, which will take place on the 2nd of May.
This weekend’s Bahrain Grand Prix will allow fans into the grandstands, however, dividing them into two groups: vaccinated and healthy.
