Formula E are set to put the season on hold for two months, postponing races in France and South Korea on top of the three races already delayed.
According to reports from Motorsport.com, Formula E and the FIA are in agreement that the electric racing championship, a series that races almost exclusively in busy city centers, should be paused due to the continuing outbreak of coronavirus - the World Health Organisation declaring the outbreak a pandemic.
To date, there have been almost 120,000 reported cases of COVID-19 across 114 countries, including five potential cases within the Formula 1 paddock.
