Formula 1 Grid Talk Episode 23: 2020 Season – What Now?

Welcome to Episode 23 of Formula 1 Grid Talk, hosted by George Howson!

Today, joining host George Howson we have Sports Journalist Louis Edwards, Engineering student Owain Medford and Master of Engineering Jack Watson.

The 2020 Formula 1 season appeared set to get underway with the Australian Grand Prix, then at the 11th hour a coronavirus scare in the paddock through the whole event into chaos. 

In the end, shortly before the first practice session was scheduled to start, and with fans still not allowed into the circuit, the race was officially postponed. 

In This Episode

The lads discuss the impact the Coronavirus has already had on the sport and where Formula 1 can and should go from here. They also react to the FIA’s response to Covid-19, was cancelled the first four races the right call?

Despite the biggest disruption to sports since the second world war, motorsport has continued in the form of eSports though, with several tournaments running instead of the Australian GP.
