    personally I'm failing to see why there's such a panic, it's hardly killed anyone, and those it has have been sick and dying anyway, by all accounts.
    Would be ironic if they make a 'cure' that causes it to mutate into something far worse.
    or is that the plan?!?!?!?
    dun dun duuuuuuun

    Next year I'm looking forward to the breaking news of the first case of the flu. A precedent has now been set.

    It will be interesting to see the political effects.

    Putin's mental note...
    "Next time we send tanks into a former Soviet territory, we announce a coronavirus outbreak the day before."

    Trump's mental tweet...
    "Mexicans invented the coronavirus and we need to erect a giant face mask on the border"

    BoJo's mental calculation...
    "I'd better prepare a health screening when I'm targeting my next mistress"

    Bernie's mental arithmetic...
    There must be a way to turn this into $$$$$

    Elon's mental...
    (That's just a statement)

    Sounds like Vettel is trying to boost his value and/or Renault and McLaren are reportedly interested in signing him for 2021!!!

    Monaco cancelled.... Now while it's not normally the best of races, I'm going to miss it.... Not long before the Indy 500 goes the same way.

    This whole situation is complete **** all around. I'm thinking of hibernating until it all this blows over. Since we can't do it that it looks like it's esports to get us through.

    Seems Ferrari's stopping F1 & Road car manufacture is because of supply chain issues .

    Rumours about not changing the rules for 2021 but delaying them a year and using 2020 chassis in 2021!
    Also they are talking about having the budget cap still come in in 2021 but at a lower level!!!!
    Talk of UK F1 teams trying to make ventilators!!
    This weekend there is supposed to be a few esport F1 races and they are suggesting more F1 drivers might take part!!

    There were rumors of them calling off the whole 2020 season. If so, it would explaining using the 2020 chassis in 2021. Teams haven't spent all that money on developing those 2020 cars never to use them.

    there were a few different races going on last week with F1 drivers, I just watched Verstappens onboard of the race I watched last week. It's been edited to keep uo the mystique, they've kept in the first crash which ended any chance of him winning by putting him down near the back, but the fought his way back up the field until about 12th and he lost it and ended up near the back again, but they've edited that bit out.

    Fairly typical online race tbh, every idiot thinks they're Max Verstappen, although in this case one of them actually is.
