And with it the whole season. See ya in 2021.
This is what i meant in my earlier post. We won't have a single race this year. The amount of infected people is growing with a factor of 1.3 everyday and there is no cure and their wont be a cure the coming next 6 months.
So no F1 in 2020!
Yes, but the international state of affairs was known a week or 2 ago, and everyone still decided to hold the race. The question is whether or not there is a set of circumstances that would allow the FIA/F1/teams to go ahead and stage a race, probably without a crowd in attendance.
If there is no scenario that would let the parties feel comfortable staging a race, I agree, the season is finished already.
This will all get worse and is going nowhere for 3-6 months as an initial estimate.
As I mentioned elsewhere, the Australian weekend seems to have gone off the rails when the McLaren crewman was said to contract the virus, and then McLaren withdrew from the event.
If there is better planning/preparation for that eventuality at a future race, perhaps the race could continue?
If the teams, as a matter of policy, have already decided it is too dangerous to the public image to risk the health of their team members, then yes, the season is done.
Or at least the majority of it.
I wonder if anything can be done to salvage anything from it, including any crazy ideas that might be implemented.
