I don't understand what you mean here. Why not still hold the races were there is no problem? Surely the reasons for doing so are the same as normal? And what does the cost of the cars matter here?

Which venues are not affected though? At the least, increased travel is a concern.

lets say Vientam is safe, would they attract more visitors if it was postponed after the crisis subsided instead of being held in the midst of it?

I would think that would be better. Maybe not though.

Sorry...forgot to answer your question lol

I guess i was thinking that collectively more money can be made and thus a better return on the cars via postponement rather then canceling individual races.

Agreed that moment is not at one cancelled race but it is increasingly looking like more races will have to be cancelled.

Qatar Moto GP race cancelled due to the virus.. bear in mind it was next week (8th March) and cancelled today, which means we could see F1 GP's cancelled at relatively short notice. Support races going ahead as the teams and riders are already there, which shows that it may well be travel restrictions to the race rather than the situation in the actual country itself that could impact on F1 as well.

Random but related question, and excuse my lack of geographical and traffic knowledge, but did the Ferrari trucks have to drive through the effected areas of northern Italy to get back to base ahead of packing up for the flight to Aus?

Also I’ve seen reports of major ports in Asia not accepting vessels that have visited effected areas, I believe Pirelli sea freight tyres out to the “fly away” destinations well in advance, Have all of these made it safely into their respective ports of entry?

If Chinese citizens are banned from travelling into many countries, or at least subject to 14 days quarantine, why shouldn't Italian citizens be?

Why not simply require a 14 days quarantine for high-risk Italian personnel? [Or indeed the Italian teams may choose not to bother to attend with such a quarantine restriction.]

Other personnel and teams can still attend the race without impediment.

Well given that multiple countries have actually done exactly that, Iran and China are also on the list. Italian was used as that's the country with F1 ties that had larger scale reported infections. And WELL beyond the numbers in other countries at the current time. But hey, if you want to be offended instead of reading the news, that's on you.

I dont know if the test is an instant answer type test (like a roadside breathalyser / drug test) or whether it is like a blood test where you get results in a couple of days, but surely the Ferrari / Alpha Tauri / perceived risk personnel could, if it be instant be tested prior to check in at the airport, or if it's a delayed result be tested a few days prior by a doctor, and if they come up clear they get a medical clearance certificate they can travel if they show positive obviously they cant.

That way seems fairer more satisfactory and less discriminatory manner than a blanket no you are Italian / whatever, you are guilty until proven innocent type system they seem to currently have. Im sure the teams / F1 would pick up the cost of such tests.

Or is that too simplistic?

Put forward with no knowledge of incubation periods for this virus.

If Melbourne goes ahead which seems likely at this point and added cases happen in Australia traced back to the event I wonder what will happen then. For certain the least that can happen is a lot of people trying to cover their backside and if deaths were to occur a lot of people trying to dodge bullets so to speak. I will take off my tin foil hat now and leave the room.

I donít think the test picks up the virus if it is in the incubation stage which can last 14 days.

Ive got tickets to the Australian GP so that is my first worry.


All sea freight such as tyres and garage equipment left their respective ports months ago and are probably in Melbourne now.


All air freight as well from Europe & UK shouldn't be a problem either, so the cars will be here.


The real problem is the drivers and team personnel.



If I was heading a team I would be getting all my personnel to Australia NOW.


Country's are very quickly planning and enacting quarantine restrictions as we speak.


So if teams get personnel here to Australia, and like I said I would be doing that now, then the only thing that will cause a cancellation of the Australian GP is if we have a outbreak in Melbourne like they have had in northern Italy.



Figures crossed I hope not on many levels.



On other GP's, I would be surprised if China is the only cancellation this year.


Not that I want to see any of them cancelled, but I can see it coming.

Agreed Bob. Teams and drivers should be looking to get here asap.


That said, if we end up with cars here but short a few drivers, I'm available
