    Bahrain and Vietnam also cancelled/postponed:

    https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/...ds-prix-postponed.6M04wEKPBevqVc6Mg2kfgH.html

    The Bahrain and Vietnam Grands Prix have been postponed due to the continued global spread of coronavirus. The races had been set for March 20-22 at the Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir, and April 3-5 at the recently completed Hanoi Circuit.

    The news follows the cancellation of this weekend’s season-opening Australian Grand Prix, and the previous postponement of the Chinese Grand Prix, which was due to be held April 17-19.

    READ MORE: How Formula 1 approached the Australian GP cancellation

    Formula 1 and the FIA say they will continue to work closely with the race promoters in Bahrain and Vietnam to monitor the situation and study the viability of potential alternative dates for both races.

    They also state that they expect the 2020 championship is expected to begin in Europe at the end of May – but this will be regularly reviewed.

    Now we have zero races in May. The Dutch and Spanish GPs have been moved to the end of the year. And Monaco will not be taking place at all this year.

    Also the 2021 rule changes have been moved to 2022.

    I am leaning out very far now:
    The Virus story seems so "controlled" that many Things will definitely fail this year.

    And this will include Formula 1.
    In my Opinion there will be no Races at all in Europe and if so,then only in the Autumn somewhere in the "No Man's Land" (Abu Dhabi would offer itself there ...)

    Update: F1 race drivers who will not be taking part in the Virtual Grand Prix of BAHRAIN

    Max Verstappen
    Romain Grosjean
    Kevin Magnussen
    Daniil Kvyat
    Pierre Gasly
    Sergio Perez
    Lance Stroll

    Max Verstappen said

    “I don’t play that game and I would have to adapt to it,”. “That would take a few days, and that doesn’t make much sense as I’m busy with other things, other games. I would have to switch too much, and that doesn’t work.”

    “I would be running around the back, and I don’t enjoy that,” he added.

    The tv presenters for Sky Sports here in Scotland actually did a not bad job of things as for the race I really enjoyed it because it was so bad :rofl:

    And Lando should be banned for cheating he stuck it on AI for most of the race and only did a few laps at the end :rofl2::rofl2:

    Christain Horner has defended the handling of the Australian Grand Prix

    This is something I've been thinking about recently. It's easy to criticize but considering how fast the target was moving, do you think it could have been handled better?

    The only thing that I realistically think could have been done would have been to postpone/cancel FP1 as soon as McLaren pulled out; tell people not to come to the track for FP1 and to listen for further announcements in the morning. That would have probably stopped them getting the lashing they did.

    But of course, hindsight is a wonderful thing...

    Daniel Ricciardo is a fucking genius :rofl2::rofl2:


    Daniel Ricciardo plans to qualify last for opening race

    Daniel Ricciardo said that he plans to start the 2020 season-opener from the back of the grid.
    Whenever the opening race of 2020 is, Daniel Ricciardo said that he plans to qualify last because it will be “mayhem” at turn 1.

    Already the opening eight rounds of the original 2020 season have been put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, and currently the Canadian Grand Prix on June 13 is set to be the season opener.

    But even if the season was to start by then, drivers would have missed three months of scheduled action, so Ricciardo has a plan to stay safe while his rivals blow out the cobwebs.

    “It’s gonna get real,” he said during a Q and A on Renault’s Instagram.

    “I’m thinking of qualifying last, because I think Turn 1 is just going to be mayhem.

    “I’ll just watch it all unfold, and then I’ll lead the first lap.

    I am curious,which weird Ideas comes next.:D

    - maybe they make an Start behind the Safety Car.......
    - maybe they make an safety Start,like after the Formation Lap a "smooth and calm" First Round,with Gaps from 3 Seconds between each Car
    - maybe a One by One from the Pit Lane Start.

    And why ?
    Because they maybe have

    forgotten how to Race ???

    People !!!
    They earn Millions driving for almost 2 Hours in a Circle.
