Re: F1 2020 Season Thread

Awaiting confirmation that the French GP is cancelled.

An unverified source has been leaking information from the garages that they're not expecting to race at all in 2020. There's now suggestion that Haas, Alfa and a few others will undoubtedly go under if that be the scenario. Renault are considering pulling out earlier and Redbull are weighing up the viability of running two teams.

In simpler terms, this is fairly dire for the sport. Russia was one of the supposed guarantees to run but the situation has changed there and even Putin is starting to cave in to the reality. I can imagine they'd still want to run but it's a certain that teams will refuse to race in unsafe countries.

The French GP is off now as Formula 1 plan to start the season in Austria now.

Re: F1 2020 Season Thread

Their plan hasn't changed really. I'm not sure they actually know what they're doing. At the minute it's await cancellation of 'Next GP' and then release a statement saying we plan to start the season at the GP that follows the cancelled one.

One thing is absolutely certain that they're evidently in absolute denial about and that's if they do manage to get a GP to go ahead, there's absolutely no chance of any fan presence.

Another issue is simply getting the teams on board. The sheer amount of people needed to make F1 work causes problems. Even without spectators it's basically a private mass gathering. Any sign or risk of infection within a team and they'll pull out. Vettel and Kimi already made it clear in Australia that they had little interest in entertaining this possibility.

He certainly does not that many options now as one can rule out him ever going to Mercedes , Red Bull and Renault are very unlikely so that just leaves a few other teams who will definitely baulk at his likely salary demands.

Silverstone set to hold two races after agreeing F1 terms but quarantine questions remain.

The British Grand Prix is set to be reprieved after Boris Johnson intervened personally to ensure that two Formula One races can go ahead at Silverstone this summer despite the 14-day coronavirus quarantine restrictions.

In a huge boost for British sports events, the prime minister has told cabinet ministers that they should work towards making sure that the double-header of races planned for July 26 and August 2 can happen behind closed doors.

There had been fears that the government’s decision not to give professional sport a blanket exemption from the quarantine, which affects travellers coming into the UK, would mean the races could not take place owing to the large number of personnel that would need to come in and out of Britain.

Whitehall insiders say that the door had been left open for sport to make a case-by-case appeal to obtain exemptions or work within the restrictions. It also makes it much more likely that West Indies and Pakistan cricket teams can tour England this summer and that future travel for Premier League teams for Champions League games can take place.

Johnson has told ministers to “make Formula One happen” and asked Oliver Dowden, the culture secretary, to work with Matt Hancock, the health secretary, and Priti Patel, the home secretary, to make certain that the Formula One races take place.

The 14-day quarantine policy for nearly all travellers coming to Britain starts on June 8. Elite sportsmen and women are not on the exemption list but it is understood that the exemption list for quarantine restrictions is likely to be significantly expanded when it is reviewed after three weeks.

One advantage for major sporting events in gaining exemption is that access is already very tightly controlled and usually takes place in secure environments. As no fans will be attending the events, it means all the personnel involved will need to be accredited, which makes it much easier to control the number of people in the venue and where they can go.
