Whoop F1 and the FIA delivering consistency and entertainment all in one. Total cluster ****
It wont go ahead. The teams voted not to race.
I heard the vote was split 5/5 to race or not to. I suspect Haas, Alpha Tauri, Racing Point, Williams and one other who I can't work out wanted to race. They see it as a good opportunity to get points over McLaren.
Surely Red Bull? If AT race then RB will.
Yep, Merc have made an official announcement saying they're packing up whatever the outcome. That's 2 teams definitely not racing then.
Official from F1:
Formula 1 and the FIA, with the full support of the Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC), have taken the decision that all Formula 1 activity for the Australian Grand Prix is cancelled
Aaand it's officially cancelled!
FIAsco and F1 making the important decisions after the horse has already bolted.
Think of all the fans that have turned up! Yikes!
Besides the obvious health issues, this is going to cost a lot of money!
Dither and delay of May proportions!
Announced less than 2 hours before the start of FP1. Wow...
Note that it's only the Formula 1 activity that is cancelled, all the support races are going ahead it seems.
It's bonkers. They've already been stood in close proximity to each other for several hours now.. if they really cared about people's health then theh'd have called it off before people started congregating at the gates.
I’ve travelled here to watch it, what a joke.
Letter that Mercedes sent:
Gutted for you. Can't imagine how frustrated you must be. Did you go to the circuit today?
and the statement from the FIA states they had a discussion about it on Thursday evening and concluded the race was off..............but waited till 2 hours before FP1 on Friday and all the punters had turned up at the track to announce it WTF?!
