Since everything else also got cancelled, there's now esports as plan B. In this one we see racing drivers (F1, Formula E, Indy 500, DTM, LeMans) vs simracers:

So the F1 season is being pushed further back, with the big 2021 rule changes being pushed all the way to 2022. But the new budget cap will be in place.

What do you do with a high tech industry that is used to dealing with constantly changing challenges and is put on hold for a few months?

BBC said:
Formula 1 teams are working with government and health authorities to increase the supply of ventilators during the coronavirus crisis.

A number of teams have applied-technologies divisions that could directly feed into the national production capacity of ventilators in the UK and Italy, particularly McLaren, Red Bull, Williams, Mercedes and Ferrari.

I feel like this season will be symbolic at beast. Might not even happen if the situation in Europe will continue to deteroriate this fast or it will be exclusive to non-European countries.

Today is the next all stars race on the race YouTube channel.

The official F1 channel also starts broadcasting historic races.

In the 50ies formula 1 seasons could be as short as 7 races. Looks like we are going back in time.

Only corona and Nico Rosberg can keep Hamilton from a title in a Mercedes.

The "official" race on the F1 channel was a yoke. GP2 engine level of driving. The unofficial races on the race youtube racing channel were quite decent races with racy racers.

Good to hear the dutch one got cancelled. The prince that vacillates it is a piece of garbage.

I just saw ESPN show it on their bottom ticker. It’s slow news right now.

But I could see the logic to speculate how healthy athletes could get immunity and move on with their life and sports. It just sounds crazy and irresponsible and was shot down.
