Re: F1 2020 Season Thread

Season cancellation will be dependent on peaks in various countries with the added detriment of where the teams travel from.

The same sources as last night are putting the most realistic starting date as June in Baku, they've been told that by senior F1 officials, I'm more inclined to believe them given they were fairly bang on with what was unfolding in Australia yesterday. Again that's dependent on numerous factors and as already suggested it could just as easy be July. The basis of all of it is the assumption and hope that all of the countries on the calendar hit peak with virus and start to trend downwards in the coming two to three months.

Obviously the issue is that not everywhere is on the same timeline of events.

An idea I've seen touted about is the potential to revisit the postponed tracks if they're doing alright by the time the seasons kicks off. I.e going back to Australia because Baku isn't doable.

Re: F1 2020 Season Thread

The season cannot be cancelled.

The amount of money involved if F1 is billions. Look at all the small companies that support bigger companies.

Re: F1 2020 Season Thread

Not necessarily. It could be cancelled on a race by race basis. I'm already hearing Baku is no longer doable. Still hearing the prospect of going back to start in Australia and even China if they're ready. They're not going to announce any entire cancellation until we're at least halfway through the potential calendar.

As detailed in previous posts, different countries and their peaks will play a huge part in this before you start factoring in travel, individuals with a positive test, drivers and so forth. Best case scenario is a half season really.

Also let's not bring 'the billions involved means this can't be cancelled back' Covid-19 doesn't seem to care about that. It's a dumb argument. Numerous sports that gross ten times more than F1 do have already lost said billions.

Re: F1 2020 Season Thread

Baku is off officially. As per above post, the sources in my previous post were the same as the ones that had early information on teams leaving Australia early. They've been 100% bang on so far. Lost track of them but trying to find any new information they've dropped. The information provided for Baku was that several F1 members had their visa revoked in the past two weeks.

Edit: Information appears to be coming from a senior F1 official that's tipping off journalists.

Bahrain
Vietnam
China
Singapore
Russia
Japan
Abu Dhabi

Are all the most likely to go ahead. 8 needed to have a championship season. Canada looking as unlikely as Baku did a few days ago. Still with the idea of revisiting fixed circuits later in the season if the above races can get going early enough.
