Azerbaijan GP is the 8th Grand Prix to be postponed

The Azerjbaijan GP has been postponed, making it the world’s 8th Formula One Grand Prix to be affected by the Coronavirus outbreak.

It was originally meant to take place on June the 7th, but has now been pushed back to a later date.

The other GPs include the Australian GP, Bahrain GP, Vietnam GP, Chinese GP, Dutch GP, Spanish GP and the Monaco GP.

A statement on Sky Sports has said…

“In coming to this conclusion, BCC’s primary concern throughout has been the health and well-being of the Azerbaijani people as well as all visiting F1 fans, staff and championship participants.

“BCC shares its fans’ disappointment at not being able to experience the pinnacle of motorsport race through the streets of Baku this June.

“To that end, we will continue to work closely with Formula 1, the FIA and the Government of the Azerbaijan Republic to monitor the situation with a view to announcing a new race date later in the 2020 season.”
