It was more let’s not stray into suggesting that the people in the sport are uncaring and acting in a cynical way to a serious real world problem. The might even make the wrong choices, but that would be more to do with poor information. Of course they might even want to reduce exposure, but to suggest that this comes before people demonstrates more about us than them I feel.

Just sticking up for people

I would imagine that the FIA and Liberty accept that it will not take place and behind the scenes it is a question of whether it is postponement or cancellation.

I have just had an email from my supplier in China saying the factory opening has been put back a week and I must say I am not surprised. Whether this is a good indicator of how things are going or not I don't know.

They have probably erred on the side of caution and are right to let you know, it's a tricky situation. It's a big crisis at the moment, let's hope all is sorted in time

Not a big surprise but we will have to wait until the virus situation is clearer before they can even think about a new date

Realistically is there a gap they can slot it in to anywhere in the calendar? Or is "postponed" really just "cancelled" by another name?

i think "cancelled" might be closer to the truth as the situation is not improving and they have different priorities at the moment

and the calendar is pretty busy as it is - last time a race was postponed (bahrain during the arab spring, or whatever the more politically correct name is) they couldn't fit it in.

A little break for the drivers and the teams before moving back to Europe, can be very crucial for R&Ds.

given the circumstances, its the right decision...but almost a full month between Vietnam and Zandvoort. thats more then a little break.

probably too late to find another venue for that date. maybe schedule a test or some other fan experience type event to fill the gap?

if things improve, between Russia and Japan or Japan and US? the importance of the Chinese market may be enough to convince the teams to make it work.

Hear hear, I cant say that I will shed any tears about a GP that is towards the bottom of my 'must see 'list. But the current crisis puts such trivia as a Grand Prix into the right perspective - and it may be one of the few occasions when F1 acknowledged a real world problem, apart from the odd bout of virtue signalling black armbands that is. It's never been over fussed about people being banged up without trial and /or tortured in some countries it visits .

of course fair and true, but with all due respect, it is also true that at all times all countries in the world have more important things to worry about then F1 races.

just speaking for myself, i dont see whats wrong about speculating about life returning to normal in the future nor do i see speculating about a future date as insensitive to what is currently happening.
