Re: F1 2020 Season Thread

Suspending a few races on an already time restricted calendar isn't feasible. So cancellation or no spectators is highly likely. The financial implications of such measures are pretty dire.

Ultimately with F1, it's a touring sport. Arriving at whatever country during whatever time line they're in regarding the outbreak. If it just so happens to peak at the time they're due to race in each country then the effects could be fairly catastrophic for this season.

McLaren out of Australian Grand Prix after team member tests positive i wouldn't be surprised if the whole thing get cancelled.

2 members of the Haas team ALSO have the virus!

Probably to late to cancel unless the majority pull out but 2 members of the Haas team also tested positive for the virus.

Formula one teams are in a meeting currently to decide if the Australian GP goes ahead.

Re: F1 2020 Season Thread

It's beginning to look like there's potential for the entire season to be scrapped. As above, we're gonna see virus peaks at different times across the calendar.

Re: F1 2020 Season Thread

Try repeating that to the world markets and the sports of Football and Basketball that are grinding to halt and are worth infinitely more than Formula One. There's nothing to be done. Hold non championship races in front of no spectators. The financial loss is still there.

Also as of yet there's no cancellation. There's very much activity in Australia. Feeling the US 2005 Gp vibe coming on.

---------- Post added at 22:19 ---------- Previous post was at 21:46 ----------

Follow up: That's basically that then, confirmation that if F1 push ahead with a race this weekend, spectators will be banned. Add that in with a source that on top of McLaren being out, Kimi and Seb have allegedly already left. Daft that it's taking this long, pretty poor from Australia and just as poor from F1 given there's currently spectators surrounding the place. Same source is now claiming that Alfa Romeo, Haas, Racing Point, Williams, AlphaTauri are the only teams that have prepared for a race and that all others are refusing or have accepted cancellation. There was a vote overnight that tallied 5-5, the 5 in favour being above and the latter 5 have refused to participate.

https://streamable.com/59nmm

---------- Post added at 22:41 ---------- Previous post was at 22:19 ----------

Source was correct, now confirmed that both Kimi and Seb left earlier.

Now we're officially done.
