For what other reason then the outbreak of the corona virus… There are alarming news coming from Spain, which should be soon visited by the racing circus. If this doesn’t happen the British will have a good chance of triple the races.
At the moment the F1 field is currently spending its free week, which will be spent mainly in the spirit of logistics as the teams will soon have an appearance at the British Grand Prix. There – just like in case of the Austrian Grand Prix – will be two races unless life rewrites this scenario (too).
It was said that last Sunday this has been a recurring topic at the Hungaroring paddocks, and it is said that it’s obvious that the stables would like to know as soon as possible what to prepare for. As lock-down measures have already started in Spain, there are already closures in 200 kilometres from Barcelona, F1 has begun to work on a plan “B”, in case it would not be possible to hold the Spanish Grand Prix on the 16th of August.
It’s just one of these seasons, no need to be surprised when the announcement about Silverstone finally comes. We wouldn’t be surprised if “for some strange reason” the Hungaroring also organized another competition…
