If you ever have to follow Sky News broadcasting for any length of time, particularly with a developing story, you'll regularly hear them use the phrase 'first with breaking news'. If their story turns out be inaccurate, they'll issue an amendment or ignore the fact they ever covered the story.
They run the assumption that if they run with stories often enough, some of them will turn out to be right. (A bit like the 1,000 chimps writing Shakespeare claim).

I am regularly involved with situations where Sky journalists have operated on the 'run with the story, then get the facts and find out what the story is' approach.

If Sky had been first to break the postponement, you can guarantee they'd tell you every half hour for the next 24 hours that they were first with the news.

Radio says officials/marshals have been contacted to say track events are going ahead as scheduled today.

Could easily just be the support activity, which there is lots of. No word on F1 yet.

There are some rumours that Vettel and Raikkonen left Melbourne. I'm not sure if It's true but who knows.

Still no official word from the organisers or the FIA on what is happening. I wonder how much the media actually know or if they are actually just speculating

Juarez Jed should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
What a farce !
So worried about the health and well-being of fans that they were happy for them all to crowd on trams to get to the track and stand for hours at locked gates cheek-by-jowl and in each others back pockets only to be turned away.
One positive result from 9 tests. If they were so inclined to cancel on just one positive result they should never have come and attended local hotels and cafes before making this call. The official dinner went ahead last night !
Mercedes saying they were concerned for the mental health of their employees and couldn't proceed.! You'd think they'd all slept with typhoid Mary !
Three people were killed yesterday in Melbourne in a knife attack and police shooting of the offender but lets all panic about 1 positive test.
I acknowledge that the event should have been cancelled but I think they have shut the gate well after the horse has bolted with this one. The teams have exposed themselves and the public with all that international travel for nothing.
Sorry for ranting but I am so disappointed, so much more so because they have cancelled after the fans & everyone has shown faith and travelled and honoured their hotel bookings ! A refund on your ticket is pretty small change !
