Autodromo Nazionale Monza confirmed that they will investigate the reports of fan harassment and poor crowd management during the Italian GP.

Footage of some fans at Monza telling the other ones to take off the merchandise of a driver or a team they themselves did not support appeared on social media last weekend. The fans were also heard booing race winner Max Verstappen after a controversial Safety Car finish.

Furthermore, there were reports of long queues of fans waiting to pay for tokens for food and drinks throughout the weekend.

Several days after the Italian GP, Autodromo Nazionale Monza reacted to the issues and announced that they will conduct an investigation.

“Autodromo Nazionale Monza expresses its regret for the discomfort of those who, among the many fans who flocked to the last Italian GP, would have encountered certain inconveniences,” the statement read.

“The structure and its people have lavished their best efforts to realize an event that exceeded all attendance records, going beyond all estimated forecasts.

“For Autodromo Nazionale Monza the fans’ experience is a priority and for this reason, a rigorous verification has been initiated also with the partners to ascertain and investigate the origin of any criticalities and take the consequent measures so that this does not happen again in the future.”
