Formula One cars from Italy have already started arriving in Australia and there is no way that the opening Grand Prix event of the racing season will get cancelled, postponed, or even be held behind closed doors, say the organisers, despite very real fears regarding the spread of coronavirus becoming an issue.
Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Grand Prix Corporation Andrew Westacott recently revealed that the race will be proceeding as planned at Albert Park in Melbourne after it got announced as the next one on the calendar. The race set to unfold in Bahrain on the 22nd of March, however, will be run without spectators being present and the Chinese Grand Prix in April has been postponed entirely.
The spread of coronavirus has led to legitimate concerns being raised about whether our Grand Prix will be affected, but Westacott was adamant that there is zero chance of this happening. He said that, although every possible precaution is being undertaken, things will go ahead as planned since life has to go on in spite of fears around the dangers of this pandemic.
He mentioned the arrival of the Italian freight, with cars from Alpha Tauri and Ferrari having already come in from Avalon airport. He said that key personnel were on the planes and that the only two of these that were not from Italy itself are Sebastian Vettel, who entered from Switzerland, and Charles Leclerc, who came from Monaco via Nice.
