The Monaco Grand Prix circuit is to be constructed from next week in preparation for its Formula 1, Formula E and Historic races in the coming months.

Last year saw both the F1 and Historic grand prix’s cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the event organisers are pressing on with planning for the 2021 events.

While coronavirus has also put this year’s races under threat, the Automobile de Monaco said in January it was committed to making sure the events ran as normal.

Monaco is currently scheduled to host all three races over a one-month period, beginning with the Historic Grand Prix between April 23-25.

This will then be followed by the Monaco E-Prix on May 8, before the Monaco Grand Prix takes place on May 20-23.

On Wednesday, the local government announced the instillation of the street circuit would start from next Monday.

Preparations will include repainting track markings and installing barriers and various other infrastructures around the track.

To ensure the work can be completed in time for Historic GP in April, construction will begin on February 22 and will last for seven weeks.

Monaco’s absence from the 2020 calendar was the first time the Principality had not held a race around its streets since 1954.

It is currently due to host the fifth race of the 2021 season behind Bahrain, Imola, Portugal and Spain.
