The Dutch & Spanish GP Are Officially Postponed
Formula 1 postpones both the Dutch GP and the Spanish GP as the spread of COVID-19 remains a health concern for the FIA & the 2020 Formula 1 Season.
The news of the postponement of two very important races for Formula 1 comes as a blow to F1 fans but an even bigger to the pocketbooks of Formula 1.
The Dutch Grand Prix has been absent from the grid since Lauda, Senna, and Prost were all dueling on the track at the same time in 1985. Seeing as though Formula previously announced racing wouldn’t begin until late May, this is hardly a shock. The back to back string of races was moving to the test site of Catalunya for the Spanish Grand Prix next. This has now too been postponed with the plans to create a much more tight season possible including some two day events.
The cancelling of the Monaco Grand Prix outright was especially painful for all considering it’s also the only grand prix that doesn’t have to pay Formula 1 to be raced.
Considering how Formula 1 are announcing these often with errors or confusing messages, I’ll monitor the situation closely and keep you updated via the F1 News page.

What’s Next For Formula 1?
Formula 1 and The Automobile Club de Monaco have also confirmed the outright cancellation of the Monaco Grand Prix which further puts F1 of making championship status in the 2020 season. As of late March Formula 1 has drawn a line at Baku as the first race while also officially announcing that the 2021 new regulations are now put on hold until the 2022 season. In an effort to use the time of no racing “wisely”, Formula 1 has moved up the summer break to these next few weeks. I will keep you updated all the most relevant, topical F1 news possible.
