AMuS: 'GP of Bahrain and Vietnam have already been cancelled, factories shut down'

The Australian Grand Prix has been cancelled and it seems like just a matter of time before other races follow suit. For example, Auto Motor und Sport are already reporting that the Bahrain and Vietnam Grands Prix are cancelled due to the coronavirus. 

The Bahrain Grand Prix was due to go ahead behind closed doors, but even that now seems very unlikely. A member of the McLaren team contracted coronavirus. In Australia, reports from the German outlet suggest that the teams have decided to shut factories down for two weeks so that costs will be reduced. 

In the United Kingdom, processes might be underway from the government to stop working in factories. 

GP of the Netherlands at risk

If this report comes true, the Dutch Grand Prix will be the first event on the schedule. But that is also at risk. With the coronavirus situation getting worse in Europe, all activities may be cancelled until June. Almost all countries in Europe suffer from coronavirus, which means that events larger than 100 people are not allowed.
