Fires in Canada pose no threat to the race

We have already talked about the fierce forest fires in the province of Quebec, but Formula 1 assured that they will not stand in the way of the Canadian Grand Prix next week.

In total, more than 150 fires have been recorded in Quebec, but the closest is 800 kilometers from Montreal. Smog from the fires blanketed southern Canada and the northern United States, including New York. Air quality in Montreal deteriorated earlier this week, but it has not yet reached the point where residents are being advised to stay at home or restrict their movements on the streets.

Air quality in Montreal has returned to normal over the past 24 hours, with early forecasts for next week promising rain and winds that will continue to blow the smog out of Montreal. All this has allowed Formula 1 to confirm that the Canadian Grand Prix will take place on the scheduled dates of June 16-18.

“The Canadian Grand Prix is ​​not in danger,” said a Formula 1 official. “The situation in Montreal is currently different from the situation in other parts of the country and in the northern United States. Risks remain low and the air quality in Montreal is rated as good.”
