I doubt we will see a race in Australia, Vietnam or China. Bahrain will be the end of season race, and the Spanish GP will be a double header race with the Netherlands that will be run between the race in Hungary and Belgium.
I have voted for "The Season Will Be Cancelled" because, based on 40 years' F1 fanaticism, the teams will have a massive problem with the schedule, ability to agree on how many races count, whether points are points, if points should be awarded if races are cancelled/postponed etc etc etc
So, although races go ahead, they won't be "valid".
Well, right now if the reporting is correct (and I have no way of knowing that)....the Chinese are reporting less than 25 new cases a day and this is has been the case for a week. So.....it appears that they have mostly contained it. Does that mean in a few weeks, they can start operating more normal? Maybe. The same may also be the case for Singapore and Japan....as appears to already be the case for Vietnam. So they and other places may be able to host races in the second half of this year. The problem is that the teams need to make sure they are not infected. I guess they could quarantine all the teams for two weeks before they travel to a grand prix. Not particularly convenient but possible.
So, they may be able to assemble a half-season in the second half of this year. We shall see.
After the postponement of races in Bahrain and Vietnam was announced, Todt tweeted a short message:
"the Safety of people is paramount.".. and was criticized by other users of the social network.
"First you make ten thousand people wait in front of the closed gates of albert Park, and then you claim that this is for their safety?"-
this question was asked to Todt repeatedly, but it remained unanswered.
I agree on Jean todt, people already know what I think I of jean todt, worst FIA president we ever had, this the guy who in 2012 sent the team off to Bahrain in a on going civil war & several threats towards the GP. then almost said I would've loved to attended the grand prix. but unfortunately im double booked so I cant be in Bahrain. don't get me started on the fact the most powerful man in motorsport couldn't move the Japanese GP 4 hours earlier for driver safety. for a massive tyhoon that was predicted to hit at the exact time it did 7 days before. then the newest one because I don't think was anything dodgy about how the hush hush secret settlement between FIA & Ferrari. because its not like the president of the FIA worked at Ferrari for 15 years & in very senior management position at Ferrari for 13 of them years winning 106 GPs, 6 driver world titles & 8 Constuctor world titles
F1 summer shutdown brought forward in response to coronavirus outbreak
the World Motor Sport Council has approved a change to the 2020 FIA Formula 1 Sporting Regulations,
moving the summer shutdown period from July and August to March and April and extending it from 14 to 21 days.
All competitors must therefore observe a shutdown period of 21 consecutive days during the months of March and/or April.
