Race Managing director Eric Boulier said that the French government has decided to extend the lockdown by 11 May. Apart from this, restrictions have been imposed on the gathering of people until mid-July in the country. That is why this decision is taken. This is the tenth race of Formula One this year, which has been canceled or postponed due to COVID-19.

Formula One will begin in Europe from July 5
Meanwhile, Formula One boss Chase Carrie said the Corona-influenced season race can begin in Austria from July 5. He said that we have targeted to start the race in Europe in July. The first Grand Prix will be held in Austria from 3 to 5 July. Formula One season will begin in Eurasia in September, Asia in October and America in November. The Bahrain Grand Prix will take place in December and the season finale will be in Abu Dhabi. During this time we would have done 15 to 18 races.
Apart from this, the British Grand Prix will also be organized without the audience. On Monday, Silverstone Circuit managing director Stuart Pringle said, “I am very disappointed to say that this year the British Grand Prix will be without an audience.” We have been avoiding this difficult decision for a long time. But in the current situation, it’s clear that it is not easy to race under present circumstances.
