The Azerbaijan Grand Prix, due to take place on 7 June, has been postponed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.The street race in Baku is the eighth race to be called off at the start of the 2020 World Championship season.
The Canadian Grand Prix, on 14 June, is the first race on the schedule that has not been postponed.However, the Montreal event must be considered in doubt after Canada became the first country to pull out of the Summer s Olympic Games in Tokyo.
F1 will be flexible with its dates, too – the 2020 season could be extended into the early part of next year, and the start of the 2021 championship pushed back from its usual mid-March date.Unfortunately,though,Races in northern latitudes, such as the Canadian, Dutch, Belgian and British Grands Prix, are restricted by the weather and would have to be held in the summer or early autumn.Who knows what is going to happen next?
