The Netherlands, Spain and Monaco all postponed now, at this point will we even see a race this year.... looking increasingly unlikely

If they're asking for a years delay on the new rules, I can see them binning this season completely.

Monaco definitely won't happen this year, it can't be postponed.

I believe there needs to be eight races for there to be a championship - I'm sure they'll try their best to squeeze them in even if that's all back-to-back.

I think either Autosport or The Race said it was 12 races needed for a championship

I think they'll just bin this season altogether. If they're putting the rule change back a year then a Championship with less than half the races isn't going to be worth anything.

Apparently if you download the demo of the F1 2019 game on Xbox/PS4 right now it’s the full game free for a month, which is a nice gesture

F1 are streaming Brazil 2016 on their YouTube channel at 3pm:

But you may want to wait until it starts before accessing that link as the freeze frame they've chosen whilst it's waiting may be a spoiler.

Watching the Virtual GP, and Jimmy Broadbent is live streaming too. I assume a few of them might be, but I have no idea how to find them!

I was watching on Lando's stream, his game quit so he didn't start but the game's AI ran the car - then he managed to regain control half way through the race

Enjoyed the racing again tonight and Jimmer did well better than I expected, its pretty weird that I'm enjoying this racing better than the usual F1 circuit.
