    Default 2020 F1 and Coronavirus

    Liberty media has lost $10B in eval since the outbreak.

    With China being "postponed" and Vietnam could be chopped since they now put anyone thru Italy into 14 day quarantine. How do you think this season will go with more potential cancellation and lost of personnel?

    In some respects it could be a positive.
    If Liberty adapts well, then they could have a large amount of people subscribing online to watch instead.

    Well McLaren just pulled out of Australian Grand Prix, team member tested positive. So there is one race gone from the season.

    The first year I've finally gotten my McLaren gear on time to start the season too.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Not surprised, I forgot who said if one team is out, race is out or it's not fair for the championship.

    Yes this is exactly what I read. That's why I was saying that we are one race gone for the season.

    Well McLaren will be on a 14-day quarantine, next race was supposed to be next weekend, so I bet that one is as good as cancelled as well. Realistically I could see the Netherlands as the start of the season.

    For 12 staff members. Not the whole team.

    I just wonder how many those 12 people came in contact with. Seems the slow incubation time could really ramp that number up no?

    Damn it, thought we could squeeze it in before it was too late. Nope, too late.

    Got a bunch of free time this weekend. On the bright side, the wife won't be made at me for watching F1.

    Is Australia even happening this weekend or has it been suspended?
