This year's Monaco Grand Prix will go ahead as planned this May, organisers have declared.

Last year, Formula 1's most iconic race on the streets of Monte Carlo was cancelled for the first time since 1954 due to Covid-19.

As a result, the Automobile Club de Monaco vowed a bumper year of racing in 2021, with the e-Prix, Historic and F1 GP all taking place within a month.

However, after the Australian GP was recently rescheduled and Imola confirmed as replacing the Chinese GP, reports claimed Monaco would be among three more races set to be cancelled along with Azerbaijan and Canada.

“Despite the latest rumours circulating on certain websites and social media, the ACM can confirm that the Monaco GP will take place from May 20th to 23rd, 2021,” a tweet read on Monday.

This comes after F1 also dismissed the reports of three race cancellations last week.
