Are fans allowed to attend the 2021 Monaco Grand Prix?

FORMULA ONE returns this weekend to the French Riviera and the historic Monaco Grand Prix.

The tight, twisty circuit through the streets of Monte Carlo remains one of the most iconic races in the F1 calendar.

After more than a year of disrupted sport, restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic are beginning to loosen with crowds returning to some events – but what about Monaco?

Are fans allowed at the Monaco Grand Prix?

This year’s Monaco GP is set to be a cracker, with Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen the early-season frontrunners in the Drivers Championship.

It was the reigning Brit champion who came out on top a fortnight ago in Spain, where 1,000 racing fans were allowed in to watch.

In the south of France this weekend, the racing will take place over three days as usual.

Monaco didn’t host an F1 event in 2020, the first time Formula One hasn’t included the race in its schedule since 1954.

And the good news is that fans WILL be permitted in the Monte Carlo stands.

But as you’d expect, the number has been capped due to Covid restrictions.

On Thursday, Saturday and Sunday a total of 7,500 petrolheads will be allowed into the stands to watch practice, qualifying and the race itself.

Friday, May 21 is a rest day, but 3,000 lucky spectators will be allowed into the paddock to mingle and check out the cars.

All fans are required to take a PCR test 72 hours before entering the track, while they will have to provide proof it was negative.
