The “Covid 19” epidemic delayed the start of the World Championship, as the opening race that was scheduled in Australia in mid-March was canceled, and the Monaco race in May met the same fate. In addition, the other six phases, which are Bahrain, Vietnam, China, the Netherlands, Spain and Azerbaijan, have been postponed.
And still the first race officially listed on the website of the championship, Canada’s Grand Prix at the Jill Villeneuve circuit on June 14.
“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 decided, according to a joint statement by the British race organizers at the Silverstone circuit and the world championships organizers in a joint statement.
“We estimate that other sporting appointments in Britain are scheduled for July, in which a decision was taken (regarding to postponement or cancellation), but it is important to note that its logistical preparations and its sporting arrangements differ from those undertaken by Silverstone, so our timetable gives us an opportunity until the end April in order to make a final decision. ”
The organizers stressed that “the safety of the fans, colleagues, and the whole Formula 1 community will be our priority, and we will continue to communicate with the relevant authorities.”
