For the second year in a row, due to constraints and logistical problems caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Formula 1 and MotoGp Grand Prix organizers in Australia have canceled events.
Australia’s Grand Prix president Paul Little said he was deeply disappointed but was aware of the “challenge Australia faces with current international travel restrictions”, stressing the “importance of vaccinations”.
Severely late vaccinations in Australia. The country has shielded itself from Covid with very strict restrictions and lockdowns but failed to prevent the delta variable from arriving within its borders. The new strain was entered in Sydney by a taxi driver, without a mask, who picked up a returnee at the airport, who then tested positive.
Formula 1 could replace the Melbourne GP with another: “We have several options to fill the vacant fund, which will be analyzed in the coming weeks, but we are sad that we have to part with Australian fans this year,” the Twitter profile said. . F1 President and CEO Stefano Domenicali has made it clear that a 23-race season is still being planned, as well as on the current calendar.
