F1 won’t cancel races, even if a driver tests for coronavirus

LONDON — Method A single races will never be canceled if a driver assessments favourable for the coronavirus or if a group withdraws, CEO Chase Carey states.

F1 would like to avoid a repeat of the year opener in Australia in March, which was canceled when the McLaren group withdrew after a personnel member tested favourable for the virus. The year is now set to begin with two races in Austria on July five and twelve.

“A group not currently being ready to race wouldn’t cancel the race. I do not think I could sit in this article and lay out the repercussions.
