Formula 1 does not expect there to be any set-up delays to next weekends Monaco Grand Prix, as personnel have been allowed access to the Imola circuit to dismantle motorhomes and equipment.

The Emilia Romagna GP weekend was cancelled by F1 due to adverse weather in the region, which caused floods and local infrastructure problems.

At the circuit the rise in water levels caused floods in the support paddock for Formula 2 and F1's TV compound, while the main pit and paddock complex was unaffected.

F1 Chief Executive Officer, Stefano Domenicali, said the decision to not proceed with the race was taken to ensure there was no "extra burden for authorities" while they deal with the situation in the region.

RacingNews365.com understands that personnel have been granted access to the circuit this morning for essential activities only, which includes packing up and shipping out equipment to the next race in Monaco.

The Monaco GP is still scheduled to take place on 26th - 28th May as planned, making it the first in what will become a double-header with the Spanish GP between 2nd - 4th June.
