Ross Brawn says F1 are planning to race during summer break
Ross Brawn has outlined plans for how the 2020 season will look now that the coronavirus outbreak has impacted numerous races, saying the August summer break will be used to hold events.
After a long delay on Thursday, Liberty Media and F1 eventually made the decision to cancel the Australian Grand Prix, which joins the already-cancelled Chinese GP.
Vietnam has followed suit, while Spain and the Netherlands will likely follow as the proposed start date for the season has been pushed back to May.
Trying to piece together a competitive campaign remains a challenge for F1 management, but Brawn has some ideas as to how it can be achieved.
"Maybe we take a hiatus, we take a pause - and then we use that opportunity to say right, for this time at the beginning of the year we won't have any races, we'll look at relocating those races later in the year," Brawn explained to Sky Sports.
