I kind of hope this was tweeted with tongue in cheek.

I mean obviously we'll miss Hannah Montana the most duh.

F1. It's a sport honest.

Well autographs and music isn't sport, so it's a harmless tweet.

What's important is whether the racing goes ahead or not. I think they'll pull it. Let's have a poll.

that news has hit me like a wrecking ball, but as we well know very few things stop F1. even driver death or civil war going into its 2nd yr didnt

all i did have a chat with miley cyrus few weeks ago turns out big F1 fan.
i asked "so whats your favourite thing about F1"

miley replied "i love watching the cars at monaco going from saint devote up to casino square"

i said "oh really, whys that"
miley replied " its all about the climb" :D :tumbleweed:

Hamilton seems to be speaking sense; he has asked why the Australian GP is even running!
  • Given that all Italian sport has been cancelled
  • Given that the US has banned all flights from EU countries
it seems deeply irresponsible to run the F1 circus.

Similarly, it seems deeply irresponsible that major events like the Cheltenham Festival are still going ahead!

China has shown the way to deal with Covid-19. The rest of the world needs to follow suit!

very true but we all watched F1 for long enough to know this is completely normal, io have a feeling that extra prediction in start of febuary is a slam dunk

after current events, ill add another one to this. that F1 will keep up its long tradition plowing on pig headed with events that everyone sensible is advising them to rearrange or cancel, like japan 1976, imola 1994, bahrain 2012, japan 2014
for me in uk events, i think you should just the delay these things we restart the sporting calendar in may if hopefully everything is fine. ebcause sports without fans is ridiclously

Of course you now have to question who that team member came into contact with whilst in the paddock so who needs to isolate themselves. A lot of Ferrari employees won't even be able to go home! People keep saying "But F1 always carrys on" like it's an excuse for it but it really was a very daft decision not to suspend the start of the season.

Well, i certainly wouldn't want to be the one charged with making the call. The only reason they went in the first place was because of the financial penalties of being the one to do so, i.e. the FIA, Formula 1, the race promoter and i'm sure some others, like Pirelli for example. If the government do it, they can't all point fingers at each other, so they're all holding out for their hand to be forced. Yes, ridiculous.

If it's off then this season will be the first one to simultaneously have and not have 22 races.

With China and Vietnam likely to be out then the season with the most races ever could also be the season with the least races on about a decade.

BBC saying it's off. Sky saying it's on and is going to be best race ever ever ever.
we cant blame liberty media. this is ingrained in F1. cant forget the most famous back in 1976, the drivers were forced to race in unsafe conditions because of TV pressure. but alot of colleagues at work as this is the discussion. are amazed at f1 stubbornness how even a ongoing civil war in Bahrain that has stopped many a sporting event couldn't stop a race

it is amazing to think that our season starts in under 8 hrs. & we are still none the wiser

How idiotic to allow all the teams to get out to Melbourne, no doubt put all the road closures in place etc. and then make a decision to call off in the early hours of the day before the practice sessions.
