First topic message reminder :

Thought I'd start this thread since no-one else has yet.

First glimpse of this season's cars as Haas unveil their entry for this year. Not really much difference visually from last season, but then there haven't been any major rule changes:

Have to say I quite like this livery.

Feel free to add more pics as they are released...

Well teams start designing next season's cars halfway through the current one...even earlier if there are major changes planned, so I think most of them will already have done a lot of work on the 2021 cars.

But I suppose it makes sense to put that work on hold until a regular schedule can be re-established. Its not just the income, but factories and suppliers may have staff self-isolating, or they could be experiencing parts / materials shortages.

the isolation stuff is a factor but most teams just cant afford to write off developing a car without a seasons income. Imagine a fair few are at risk without the season going ahead so this is a sensible measure to reduce costs

Azerbaijan officially cancelled now. Doubtful any F1 season begins before August.

Yeah I heard. Looks like that 8-race championship could be a thing this year.

There is no cure for coronavirus apart from the individuals immune system - which isn't good enough for some.  This thing is going to continue to claim lives into next year.  

Currently the only hope is for a vaccine - which many estimate would take 12 - 18 months to produce (although throw enough money and expertise at it and it should be achievable earlier) or for herd immunity to develop - meaning enough people have caught it and survived to create a herd barrier to prevent rapid spread, enabling the existing health service to cope with those that do get it in the serious form.

Things could happen with this virus - new strains could emerge, either more lethal, less lethal or equally lethal.  There is no solid evidence of that occurring so far.

Sporting events with large crowds are off for the foreseeable future.  Some have been suspended with a tentative return date subject to review.  Others have been delayed to next year.

Sports can return but behind closed doors to begin with.  In general healthy people, with no underlying health issues, and not elderly are not at significant risk of death.  However in sports maybe managers, owners, ground staff, analysts, admin etc may fall into the risk group.

There is additional problems with international sports - this requires cross borders travel, involving people distributed around the world.   When one hot spot lessens another hot spot may develop.  This virus started in one province in China and now it has spread.  It's spread was a direct result of international travel of infected people.

My view is that this season is going to be scrapped and then we start again next year with this years car for next year and all the major regulation changes brought in for 2022.

Looking at what happened and is happening in Italy and Spain with regard to Coronavirus, expect something similar for Britain over the next few weeks. It is going to take a while for the effects of the lockdown to be seen. Spain went into lockdown on 14th March and look where it is now.
