Thousands more will start watching once the stranglehold they have over F1 is freed and decent rules can be implemented.

I have to wonder just how bad it must be for either/both of Ferrari and the FIA, if this is preferable to being open about what happened.

Marshals are reporting they are getting messages saying it is still going ahead, TBH they should pull it but a lot of people are already there.

I bet Ferrari are loving the current lack of publicity

Vettel and Kimi have flown home apparently. Not all the teams were at 9am when the curfew ended.

Looks like there will be a couple of sim races over the weekend featuring drivers from various series that have had to postpone races. Details over in the General Motor Racing thread: https://forums.thedigitalfix.com/for...d.php?t=630415

There's a proposal to freeze many development areas except aero and run the current cars again through next year to the current regulations, delaying the 2021 rules. Seems like a good idea to help mitigate costs and cashflow:
