Claims F1 will drop street races due to pandemic are “completely wrong”

In the round-up: Formula 1 has dismissed a report claiming races on street circuits will not go ahead this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

What they say

The 2021 F1 calendar features races at street circuits including Monaco (May), Baku (June), Singapore (October) and Jeddah (December). Reports elsewhere that these races will be cancelled due to concerns over the spread of the pandemic were rejected by an F1 spokesperson:

We have set out the details of the revised 2021 calendar and there are no other changes. The suggestion street races will not take place are completely wrong.
