To visit any Formula One race is such an emotional time that it takes one's breath away. 
Attending a Formula One Grand Prix during the pandemic period is no less emotional an event. However, to say what is dangerous and safe is as meaningless as two to two is four. But, the question is: "Are the organisers prepared to provide safety so that racing fans have even more positive emotions?" I did not go to the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi this year and do not regret it, why? Here are my pros and cons of.

The main concept during the pandemic is to provide as few people as possible, including all Formula 1 events. 
To be precise - do not allow crowds! Yes, there were not so many people on the Sochi Autodrome! And here are the first pros, as if they were the cons for someone. After all, the joy for an introvert is a real problem for an extrovert and also for Formula 1 fans.

I avoid too many people: such crowds as at the autograph session of the Scuderia Ferrari F1 Team. 
But there were no autograph sessions! Here are the two disadvantages. The Russian Grand Prix was nothing out of the ordinary and no autographs from Formula 1 drivers. Virtuality is the future, you say! But not in our case. 
What if you walked through the pit lane, touched Christin Horner's T-shirt and smelled the fresh soft tyres of Mercedes F1 cars
This kind of passion for every Formula 1 fan was virtual at the Sochi Autodrom. What kind of events then? Extreme performances of BMX etc. But you know, when I go to Formula 1, I go for everything that has to do with Formula 1. As you already understood, it was a huge fraud. If Formula One organization in Sochi tried to control the people, then it is logical that everyone was well checked for a ticket. If you think it is fast, you are wrong.

Therefore, it was the impossible mission to avoid huge queues, despite the main queue. 
On the positive side, Formula 1 fans had free time to spend mentally as much as possible in the atmosphere of the Formula One race. Go and not rush over the Sochi track, and that is a plus.

What is the conclusion? 

Now, the sale of F1 tickets for Sochi 2021 has already begun. You know, I think everything in Formula One should come from the heart, sincerely for the Formula One fans. That kind of soulfulness when you can feel calm and carefree on the track; feel comfortable and safe, surrounded by the same crazy Formula 1 fans as you. To achieve this, the organization has to not only make money from F1 tickets, but also work many hours in 2021. It needs to works so well that when you walk into the Autodrome your eyes will open wildly and you will understand that "I am just at home", releasing Christian Horner's T-shirt from your hands at the pitlane walking.
