September, as well as October, is very close but the whole world pandemic problem hasn’t been solved yet. There is a lawful question – for why to sell F1 tickets without correct information? Will F1 grandstands are full of fans if these looking like deserts right now? As much I motorsport fan, as more I want to see any real Formula 1 race with one caution-if it will be safe for everyone.
In addition to general recommendations about masks, gloves, social distance, and attention to health, there is information about meetings and groups events, according to Message sent to permanent Delegations to UNESCO on coronavirus (7th. May)
No more than 10 people should be present in a closed room. No more than 50 people for Russia or less than 50% of the total number of spectators.

So, here we’re talking about Formula 1 which means not the same crowd in front of South Coast Plaza during the sales. Formula 1 Grand Prix weekend is about tens of thousands of fans: 30 – 32 thousand on Sochi GP. Moreover, 2/3 of them are residents of other cities and countries.
Can F1 organizers in Russia or Portugal or any other country provide full safety for everyone? It’s about keeping enough of masks, gloves, and sanitizers when drivers and teams aren’t only one at the racing circuit. It’s about keeping a social distance when different families and different people ages are on.
You can also find F1 tickets selling on Portugal and Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on the official F1 Experiences website. There’re been selling tickets and special packages for travelers and fans, with guarantees (special terms). But, besides this one, many other organizations distributing tickets to F1 races. Today, during the entire crisis, a hundred dollars is not the amount that you can just give and forget.
