F1 and Liberty Media feel the wrath of the fans over COVID-19 handling

F1 and Liberty Media feel the wrath of the fans over COVID-19 handling

Formula One and owners Liberty Media are facing a huge backlash after pressing on with the Australian Grand Prix despite the risk of a large-scale event being a catalyst for the spread of the coronavirus.

McLaren have now withdrawn from the Grand Prix after a team member tested positive for the virus and now fans, angered by the decision not to cancel the event weeks earlier, have been further incensed by the statement released by the championship.

The tweet reads, "Formula 1 and the FIA have have been coordinating with all the relevant authorities on the next steps. Our priority is the safety of the fans, the teams and all personnel at the race."

The following is a selection of responses from fans, with many calling on F1 and Liberty Media to cancel not just the Australian Grand Prix, but the majority of the flyaway races that open the year.
