a bit out of left field, or a science fiction novel, and certainly going off topic but we might not be too many years away from not needing a live audience at all.

sit at home, put on your VR/AR headset and let your virtual holographic avatar take a seat in the stands along with the millions of other holograms.

5 years, 10 years, maybe sooner. some tech companies already tried it out at the last winter olympics and with a massive global 5G roll out on its way this is the future of sports entertainment and subscription based services.

for example out of the 900,000 Dutch fans who wont be able to buy a ticket, how many would pay for an option to virtually experience this race live and see their boy compete?

i mean you cant go so stuck at home and probably paying for the feed already right so why not buy the enhanced package?

personally i think the headsets are daft but the thought of attending any sporting event around the globe, any concert, to be able to stand witness to whatever the next watershed/fall of the Berlin Wall level historical moment...of course i will be investing in the hardware necessary to subscribe to whomever is offering me this services.

the revolution will be televised!

Not sure about the hologram-on-site idea , but it'd be zero problems with the tech we have today to setup a bunch of 360-cameras around the circuit to offer a way of watching the race using your VR-headset. I have a feeling the immersion would be quite intense, especially since you'd be able to place said cameras very close to the action - even on the cars themselves. Sure, you wouldn't feel the G-forces but I'm pretty sure it'd be one helluva ride nonetheless

indeed holographic representation at a far away track is an out there idea

but yeah the VR/AR stuff is very doable with today's tech. providing an immersive stream in real time would costly so a replay experience would be a sensible first step (and i think there are already some F1 VR/360 videos of a lap or two are out there already). nothing during a race though as far as i know.

The Grand Prix at Barcelona has been given a one year extension, meaning that next year's event will take place.

The number of spectators at this year's event was the lowest since 1999 despite Carlos Sainz driving (the loss of Alonso may also have been a factor) and the political unease due to separation issues with Madrid may have contributed.

The Catalonian regional government currently financially supports this race, but there is pressure for that subsidy to be stopped as there are far more pressing needs for the money.

That’s good, be a travesty if it went. And Mexico is safe. However I wouldn’t be surprised if one or two drop out
