'Austrian Grand Prix is currently unaffected and will continue as planned'

After it was announced on Tuesday that the Grand Prix of Canada will be postponed, we are already looking at the following races with the question if they can continue. At this moment the French Grand Prix is planned as the first race of the F1 season 2020 on June 28th, after which a week later the Austrian Grand Prix will be held at the Red Bull Ring.

In Austria the planned schedule remains the time being and they are currently preparing for a race on 5 July. To GPfans.com the organization in Spielberg says: "The Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring is currently unaffected and will continue to take place as planned."

Chance of postponement remains

On the other hand, however, they agree with a recent statement by Liberty Media. In this statement it was made clear that the planned calendar may still be subject to change and that one simply waits for the moment when the situation around the virus improves. So there is still a chance that the GP of Austria will be postponed at a later moment.

One of the few positive reports about the pandemic did come from Austria last week. The government there announced that they will be the first Western nation to relax measures to contain the virus. Until now, Austrians has been subject to a strict lockdown.
