Thankfully all 4 Haas team members have tested negative for COVID-19. All Team Principals are currently in a meeting to discuss the situation and decide on their plan for the race.

Aussie GP stands cancelled.

Good move finally as there is no point in running the event considering the circumstances.

With the Oz GP cancelled, I wonder whether Bahrain and Vietnam will survive either.

Heck, the entire season is on the line now. Time to bring out the old race collection and season reviews.

There are reports of many teams already stating that they will not go to Bahrain and Vietnam. Given that Spain is also in deep trouble, it is highly likely that the season begins in Baku. That too is contingent on the developments that take place between now and then.

Donít see them making it in May as well. I think Europe would just be starting to get it under control by then from what I read. That would throw the whole season into question. This could be a really tough thing to return from for a lot of the smaller teams financially.

@ds.raikkonen; The new (abbreviated) calendar may be curtailed as well. The OZ GP has been hit for a six, as apparently have the next three! So let us see what emerges.

True, I am particularly gutted for the Vietnam GP. The circuit layout looked amazing. Never really liked the Bahrain GP anyway, Monaco too.

But now some people are saying even the 2021 cars with all the radical rule changes might get postponed to 2022!

Much as I dislike it, the Monaco GP has a charm of its own. I will definitely miss it.

What about the British GP
I like the Monaco GP only if the track is wet or wet to intermediate, love to see the aggressively aero dependent cars fighting for traction and everyone is sliding all over the place!

As for the British GP, with the 24 Hours of Le Mans supposed to be held in June postponed till Sep'20, doubt if the British GP will continue. Though the official statement from the FIA is to start in June.

Automobile Club de Monaco has clarified that the race has not been postponed but cancelled for the first time since 1954. It was supposed to be held 21st to 24th May. Unprecedented things we are seeing.

Monaco
