The corona virus is flaring up again, with all its consequences. Portugal even declared a state of emergency, and for a moment it looked like the Grand Prix had to take place behind closed doors next weekend. According to Lusa fans may be present, but the number must be reduced to 27,500.
The 2020 season is one that is disrupted from all sides. Despite all the strict measures in Formula 1 efforts, the virus still manages to make its way through the paddock. At most races spectators were therefore not allowed, because the risk of contamination was too great. However, Portugal is one of the first countries that wanted to allow many fans, but the second corona wave now throws a spanner in the works. After a state of emergency was declared in Portugal, the question was whether fans were allowed to sit in the stands. The 46,000 tickets that were initially sold is therefore too large a number in this situation. The number of visitors should therefore be reduced to 27,500.
“We are still waiting for the final version of the advice from the DGS [wat in Nederland het RIVM is, red.], but in principle the limit should be 27,500 seats, “said Paulo Pinheiro, the CEO of the Algarve circuit.” The document containing this will reach us on Monday. “What is certain is that the ‘ pedestrian cards’ are not allowed, which means that these places are divided among the other stands.

According to Pinheiro, Portuguese Formula 1 fans can in any case breathe a sigh of relief. Many international fans have already canceled their visit to Portugal, because they did not dare to travel to the southern European country. On Friday, the DGS already announced that the situations for Formula 1 and MotoGP specifically were going to be reviewed, as the situation in the country is worrying.
