The “Covid-19” epidemic delayed the start of the World Championships, as the inaugural race scheduled for Australia in mid-March was canceled, and the Monaco race in May met the same fate. In addition, the other six phases, namely Bahrain, Vietnam, China, the Netherlands, Spain and Azerbaijan, have been postponed.
The first race, officially listed on the website of the championship, is still Canada’s Grand Prix at Jill Villeneuve on 14 June.
“We are still engaged in close dialogue on the ongoing situation, and we are assessing the possibility of holding the Great Britain Prize between July 17 and 19 of it,” as originally planned, said the British race organizers at the Silverstone circuit and the world championships organizers in a joint statement on Wednesday.
“We estimate that other sporting dates in Britain are scheduled for July, a decision has been taken (in terms of postponement or cancellation),” the statement continued.
But it is important to note that its logistical preparations and sporting arrangements differ from those undertaken by Silverstone, so our schedule gives us an opportunity until the end of April to make a final decision. “
The organizers stressed that “the safety of the fans, colleagues, and all of the Formula community will be our priority, and we will continue to communicate with the relevant authorities.”
The new Corona virus outbreak, which caused the death of more than 41 people around the world, imposed almost complete paralysis on various sporting events in the current period, and led to the postponement of large dates that were scheduled in the summer of 2020 to the summer of next year, most notably the Tokyo Olympics, European Cup and Copa America.
