Amid a global health crisis, Formula 1 has confirmed today that it will push through with its racing schedules for the year starting in Europe next month.
The racing competition was temporarily put on hold to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) disease. With the revised calendar, the races will now be held behind closed doors with “an expectation of having a total of 15-18 races” before the season concludes in December.
