“We want to hold the race “Formula 1”. I think during a pandemic, we have probably the best situation in Europe — in particular due to the presence of a large number of hotels. Portugal is a great track with multiple configurations. From the point of view of the organization should not be a problem. There are only economic issues, but not problems with the virus. We are ready to hold the first race in early June, if necessary. I think the circuit will open may 1″, — quotes Pinheiro The Race.

Four configurations of the circuit in Portimao correspond to the first category, the FIA, allowing the Grand Prix. The track was built in 2008, and the following year took the pre-season tests “Formula 1”.
