McLaren boss Andreas Seidl, meanwhile, has remained with the 15 affected members of his team in Melbourne. So whilst Seidle did the right thing other team bosses either wanted to race - because it suited them - or busily arranged a private jet to fly senior staff out so wouldn’t have to share a plane with the public...

Well that is admirable and a very respectful team attitude.

Ferrari clearly didn't want to race as staff started leaving the circuit before FP1 was due to start.

As their "No. 1" driver, Vettel, had already headed for the airport (or may have even been in the air by that point), the decision had really been taken out of their hands.

Or Ferrari didn’t want to race so Vettel went to the airport.

He’s part of the team so the actual situation probably developed together.

This is the more likely scenario. Ferrari had already decided they weren't racing, and had probably notified the FIA, but had not made a public statement.

Perhaps him and Leclerc will have equal treatment this season

Thinking about it, in years gone by Seb, Kimi and possibly even Hamilton might have got fined for their actions. Balestre would have made sure of it!

I remember when watching Madness on Wheels about the Group B rally era, they mentioned JMB condemned the drivers who pulled out of the 86 Portugal Rally after 4 spectators were killed and praised those that continued. So probably would have been something like that. But I digress

Where are all the people now? Who’s home?

Where is all the stuff? The cars, the parts, etc... still in Australia, they aren’t going to the next GP, so are they on the way back to the factories?
