Tickets for Formula One's season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix later this month will only be available to fans who have either been vaccinated or have recovered from coronavirus, organisers said.
The race gets the 2021campaign underway on March 28. The majority of the 2020 season was held behind closed doors.
"To ensure that the event can proceed in a safe environment, and in line with government health advice, tickets will only be available to vaccinated or COVID-19 recovered individuals," Bahrain International Circuit announced in a statement.
