Shall I believe it? How awkward will it be?

Post by darwin dali »

So, F1 is finally to return to action in a few weeks - IF nothing happens or comes in between, you never know these days. But for now, I believe it even without seeing it.
That's the good news.

However, how fuked up will it be though? No spectators, 'team bubbles', no podium ceremony or parade - it sounds rather clinical to me. Well, it's (hopefully) better than nothing. Thoughts?

Well the winner won't be able to be crowned 'World Champion" if all the races are only in Europe.

We need a few more venue's on other continents.

Oh, I'm not worried about that aspect: Sochi is on board, us crazy Americans will probably do the regular USGP on COTA, we have Bahrain and Abu Dhabi pretty much confirmed - all outside of Europe last time I checked my world map.
Besides, with Britain brexiting, is Silverstone still in Europe? :twisted: :P

July will be a busy month with F1, MLB, NBA, NHL & NFL training camps all launching. Hopefully the teams/leagues find a way to keep COVID -19 at bay. I won’t attend any of these until a viable vaccine has been tested on millions for a yr or 2.

Any updates on Williams and their search for $$$$?
