Despite uncertainty about the event's future, tickets for the Spa-Francorchamps Formula 1 Grand Prix, which takes place this weekend, have sold out.
Vanessa Maes, CEO of the Grand Prix, announced at a press conference on Wednesday that their tickets had sold out and would be greeting over 360,000 people over the weekend.
This news comes after a few difficult years for the Grand Prix.

In 2019, a driver died following a fatal accident at the Formula 2 version of the event. In 2020, they then had to deal with Covid-19 measures.
And last year, the CEO of the circuit Natalie Maillet was murdered by her husband and the F1 Grand Prix had to be cancelled mid-race because of torrential rainfall.
The Grand Prix's future however is unclear, as their contract is ending with Formula One this year, which means that the circuit may not be on next year's F1 calendar.
