Coronavirus is far from over. F1 championship could be severed from a new wave of outbreaks in European countries.
With some rumours for other rounds to be added in October in FIA assessed tracks, the season could be shortened in the countries showing difficult situations regarding anti-virus spread: Catalunya and its capital are currently severing ban in people circulation and meeting, with no more than 10 people allowed together.
We are not affected by the restrictions. Everything is controlled and reinforced with F1, the FIA and circuit protocols, which are very strict
told a spokesperson of the circuit to Motorsport.com; even if Montmelo’ lays outside the lockdown area, doubts are mounting.
A few positive cases arose despite 10.000 tests performed at the entire paddock’s personnel: Liberty Media would certainly not risk a larger contagion; an agreement with another circuit (a triple header Silverstone?) to arrange an extra race not prevented could be the more likely solution.
