French Grand Prix postponed; season starts at the earliest in July

The 2020 Formula 1 season is being decapitated more and more. It will no longer be a surprise, but after the first nine races had already been postponed or cancelled, the French Grand Prix will also be cancelled on the 28th of June due to the measures surrounding the COVID-19 coronavirus.

This means that only just over half of the original season remains, with the Austrian Grand Prix still standing for the time being as the new start to the Formula 1 season. The intention seems to be that two races will be held this weekend.

Racing without spectators?

Also the Grands Prix in July are still on the road. The decision whether the events in Austria and Great Britain will continue will be made before the end of the month. If there is already racing, there is a good chance that both races will have to be done without an audience and it remains to be seen if the circuits can afford it.

As far as the French GP is concerned, the question is whether it can be done at a later time. It is now clear that not all postponed races can be overtaken and Formula 1 will have to make difficult choices. Given the number of visitors (and the race of 2019) it seems unlikely that the race on Paul Ricard will be at the top of the Liberty Media list.
