    I am trying to find official confirmation of the cancellation and I can't find any!!!!
    On twitter 53 mins ago marshals were told to report as normal for track duties. Another person who works on site said staff all arriving and practice going ahead.

    Looks like reports that fans are not being allowed in to Albert Park!!!!
    Some suggestion that 'legal issues' are preventing an announcement!!!

    This is just madness

    Can't wait for the 2020 Netflix series 3 episode 1 Australia what a clown show......

    It now appears in a joint state from FIA F1 and Australia race track/promoters saying due to McLaren and virus all F1 activity cancelled and spectators will get full refund!

    God only knows when we can get this show on the road. This could wind up being an incredibly truncated season. What a mess this is turning out to be.

    I'm beginning to think I've had a terrible accident, I'm currently in a hospital bed in a coma, and the last 4 years or so have just been a bizarre dream.

    I think for sure the next 4 races will be off too people are in isolation for 14 days. World travel restrictions will block them. While FOM are greedily trying to make it work to get their payday.

    IT'S OFF.


    IT'S GOING TO BE A VERY STRANGE YEAR IN SO MANY WAYS, THINGS I'VE HELD IN HIGH REGARD SUDDENLY SEEM TOTALLY IRRELEVANT.

    GOODLUCK EVERYONE.


    IF WE MAKE IT THROUGH, WE SHOULD ALL MEET UP AND SHARE A PINT OR TWO AND APPRECIATE WHAT WE HAVE.

    WE COULD START BY NOMINATING A LOCATION AND A PUB.

    Who knows when it will restart. Assumes they get this under control, not sure they will that quickly. I am coughing about once an hour, do I self isolate? No other symptoms. I haven't a clue but maybe better safe than sorry.
    Maybe, they will negotiate cancelling the August break and rescheduling some of the races for then.
    If Lewis gets a WDC this year, it will be forever tainted I guess.

    I'm not bothered about it for myself, but if my mum gets it it'll probably kill her now, so I'm paranoid if I go to ssee her I'll give it to her, even though I've no symptoms.

    Which is the whole point. Too many people saying "well it's just like flu", when it's about protecting people who are vulnerable.

    Still, it's a bummer though, innit?

    Bahrain and Vietnam Grands Prix postponed!!!!!
    I think the Netherlands have a ban on large gatherings so looks like Max wont have 'his' race for a while.
    Maybe Azerbaijan will be first in June?
