Nikki Katz should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Ma Qinghua has had to quarantine himself in order to take part in the next formula e race, so yes itís a problem. I canít see f1 racing there before the autumn, and trying to fit it in will likely be difficult as the calendarís congested already.

Ma being in quarantine shows how serious this situation is. F1 needs to decide when to have a deadline on making a decision I would say.

I depend on the supply chain from China and put two orders in today, if we don't get the components ordered there will be lay offs happening. It is inevitable that the race will not go ahead, one contact in China has told me that the absolute earliest they are allowed to go back to work is the 11th of Feb and they are about a 1,000 kms away from the centre of the disease. He was of the opinion that date will be put back even further.

The compounding issue is that a huge proportion of the Chinese population migrate back to the country from the major cities for the Chinese New Year and it seems that the govt is trying to prevent those people travelling back to the Cities for work by simply closing down the industries.

Qantas yesterday put a two month embargo on any Chinese destination which has guaranteed that Australia will suffer a huge hit along for the tourist industry in particular along with returning students for the new year of University study. There are thousands of students stranded in China and not able to return.

If the race was to go ahead and one of the leading drivers was to get the virus I think the subsequent legal action by that team would be interesting seeing as they were forced to go to China by the promoters. It would be an intolerable position for Liberty to even think about holding it.

Or maybe skip the first decision, and just make a decision.

I mean not leave it too late to make a decision. Make sure the decision is made with good time, while monitoring the decision in the meantime

As long as there's an actual decision in there somewhere, and not just endless deliberation.

I think they need to plan a better strategy to decide on when they are having meetings. Perhaps they should come together as a group?

It would be lunacy to adopt a wait and see, the virus is still on the spread, and so really there is no point holding off.

As the calendar is 22 races this season, if China drops, I doubt the teams and their staff would be heart broken over an extra week or 2 at home base ahead of the start of the European season with the Dutch-Spanish double header.

I was looking at new infection rates in China earlier. It seems that it is not as high as earlier, but seems to be a roughly consistent 20% increase over the past handful of days. Sadly, it seems it will not stop anytime soon. And if they are locking things down (travel), I can't see them opening it up until things have truly reversed.

If there is no decision that comes out from today, I suspect it was lack of information within F1 as to impacts of making a decision. Such as... can we wait X days and the cost of not doing it will be roughly the same? Which I understand that logic if it goes that way. No doubt a committee will be formed!

But as I (and you) say above, the key driver is that things are getting worse and even if it was to magically slow, it will likely be weeks (if not longer) for any thawing of travel lock downs. Which means, it "should" be an easy decision to say "It is cancelled".

Interesting twitter thread...

https://twitter.com/ChinaF1Journo/st...12969257115648

A translation of the orig Chinese content is shown deeper in the thread. As best as I can tell, Shanghai authorities are halting any sporting activities until the epidemic is over. I would assume that "over" means deep into the backside of the curve of new infections (which is nowhere in sight).

The decision may not lie with F1.
