FIA FORMULA 1 AZERBAIJAN GRAND PRIX 2020 POSTPONED
"All tickets for the FIA Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2020 will continue to be valid, without any additional formality.
As soon as the new date of the Grand Prix is confirmed, all spectators will be informed accordingly about the available options..."

It's very doubtly that they will able to find new day for this race.

F1 ‘expects to start season in summer’ and to hold at least 15 races
Carey admits there is “significant potential for additional postponements in currently scheduled events”. However, he added “we and our partners fully expect the season to start at some point this summer, with a revised calendar of between 15 to 18 races.”
This would mean losing between four and seven of this year’s races. The Australian and Monaco grand prix promoters have already confirmed their races will not be rescheduled.
Carey confirmed that the season is likely to be extended in order to fit more races in, and hinted at major changes to come in the final calendar.

Why extending the season into 2021 is no quick fix for F1’s calendar
Assuming racing does commence in mid-June, as F1’s commercial rights holder Liberty Media fervently hopes it will, that leaves just six months and a couple of weeks in which to cram the same number of events that made up a full F1 season until a decade or so ago.
Although consideration is being given to extending whatever is left of this season into next year, there are obvious climatic limitations. Most venues situated north of the Tropic of Cancer fall squarely into a April-October hosting period, meaning only the Middle Eastern, Australian and Brazilian rounds, four total, can realistically be staged between November and March.

Given that I am looking out of my window, and seeing loads of people flouting the "stay at home" warning, I can't see the F1 season starting any time soon...

A interesting thing of all this postponement because now the 2021 rules are in 2022 they will be no car launches next season. because these cars will be used next season, as the 2020 chassis must be used, which is great for force india Racing point because the advtange we think they have they will keep, barring developments of course. tricky for McLaren because they have no got to stick a Mercedes engine into the same chassis as fitted the Renault engine. but then Brawn GP won 2 world titles doing that,

The new cars now will be even more equal, because majority of the 2021 (that's now 2022) cars will build underneath the budget cap, instead of before like it would've & finally there might be not be any pre season testing like we are used to because of course with the cars being very well known to teams with 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 (delete as appropriate) races under their belts, they will know it very well & it will be very reliable

Ferrari will still fight their way out of a championship and Hamilton is the most likely to win the title so there won't be too many changes on that front.

One thing that will be interesting is the effect this has on the silly season.

What choices will those at then end or nearing the ends of their contracts do as we head out of 2020 with less likelihood of a season?

well with ferrari what a time to build your potentially worse car since 2016. when its going to be used in 2021 as well typical Ferrari balls up

but yes it does throw a massive spanner because alot of contract ended 2020 because of the new rules now that era will end 2021. anything could happen we could a massive shake up or nothing at all

Do we think Hamilton is set for titles 7 and 8 if we have the same car two years in a row?

Well, they should have always put the budget cap in before they had a series of rule changes. Because of the coronavirus they finally do it right. It does mean that the big budget teams will not have as big of an advantage as they would have going into the budget cap era.
