2020 FIA Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix postponed due to novel coronavirus outbreak
In view of the continued spread of novel coronavirus and after ongoing discussions with the Federation of Automobile and Motorcycle Sports of People's Republic of China (CAMF) and Shanghai Administration of Sports, the Chinese Grand Prix Promoter, Juss Sports Group, has officially requested that the 2020 FIA Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix be postponed.
The FIA, together with the F1, have jointly decided to accept this official request from the promoter and postpone the 2020 FIA Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix, originally scheduled for 19 April.
As a result of continued health concerns and with the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring the coronavirus as a global health emergency, the FIA and Formula 1 have taken these measures in order to ensure the health and safety of the travelling staff, championship participants and fans, which remains of primary concern.
The FIA and Formula 1 continue to work closely with the teams, race promoter, CAMF and the local authorities to monitor the situation as it develops. All parties will take the appropriate amount of time to study the viability of potential alternative dates for the Grand Prix later in the year should the situation improve.
The Chinese Grand Prix has long been an important part of the F1 calendar with many passionate fans. The FIA F1 community looks forward to racing in China as soon as possible and wishes everyone in the country the best during this difficult time.
The global situation regarding this virus will continue to be monitored by the FIA with regard to other motor sport events.
So, after what must have been a frustrating last season for owners, team, drivers, sponsors, and certainly for fans, Williams has decided to change . . . their livery and not much else on their car.
Oh, I guess one driver, too.
I guess Williams will just drive through 2020 and take their real fresh step in 2021. Realistically, what did we expect? I wouldn't mind what we in the States call a 'hail Mary' approach. That'd be some super crazy shot at a new front wing and some sort of longshot at getting some gains (throw on new stuff and pray = say the Hail Mary prayer)... vs just another blah concept doomed to be detached from the rest of the field.
So guys thought I would start a watch thread to show off our time pieces. I am sure you guys have some serious collections
