Confrontational? Only because this site is full of ignorant, deluded, deniers. Suddenly they all are looking a bit stupid as Corona is in the paddock, McLaren has pulled out, Hamilton is criticising the decision to even be in Australia, Vietnam being postponed as will Bahrain.
Give it rest will you? I get that people didnt agree with you in the F1 cancelled thread (personally I did), but speaking ill of the site isn't going to do anything other than annoy everyone.

Not surprised after McLaren dropped out. Dont think anything like this has happened before, will be interesting to see the fallout. Sad that we won't have a GP this weekend, but it's fair enough.

This is it, the bottom line. Mass hysteria or not, life has changed. It got very real very quickly and the little things we do in life, simple pleasures are altering before our eyes.
I think at this point its unfair to suggest people are over reacting.
F1 teams haven't followed PH threads and sided with the naysayers, they have realised that health and safety of staff is important.

Wider picture now is like someone said all the people who make money from sporting events, the cafes, hotels etc etc.....
That is ultimately what will possibly tip things into carnage territory.

I am gutted about the events being shelved, i have paid for sky and bt sport for MotoGP, I have no glee in this, but it was getting obvious that F1 could not just blindly carry on.
No one has done anything based on "well some people on forums think this looks bad on us"....
It is not any posters on here's fault they shelved it...

So far only on the BBC. Nowhere else as yet.

BBC say two F1 officials told them it was off, Sky say one Team Principal confirms it is still on after an FIA meeting he was at. Cant tell who's info is more recent.

No way of knowing until we hear from the FIA or F1.

I think the F1 meeting was 45 mins ago and the BBC stuff is abut 11 mins ago. Still doesn't really help us smile

Is Lewis done for? Another year older. The other teams have a huge amount of time to catch merc up, merc might bail out. F1 might not restart in its current guise for all we know. Also his motivation could waiver - psyched up for this year in training then it all gets taken away.

I reckon he’s had it and the records won’t be broken.

Speculation - who the hell knows?
His isolation is likely to be more comfortable than yours or mine - and good luck to him.

Always happy to race anyone in anything.
