Austrian Grand Prix: No plans to cancel July race

Austrian Grand Prix: No plans to cancel July race

Austrian Grand Prix officials have confirmed to GPFans that there are currently no plans to postpone or cancel the July race.

Originally scheduled to be the 11th race of the 2020 Formula 1 season, Austria now sits as the second only to the French Grand Prix and, in a brief statement to GPFans, Projekt Spielberg confirmed the current status of the event.

"The Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring is currently unaffected and will continue to take place as planned (as of today, April 8, 9 a.m.)," GPFans have been told.

However, even with the intention of hosting the race on the date originally scheduled, officials made clear that they wished to be associated with the most recent statement from Liberty Media, leaving open the possibility of a postponement later down the line.

On April 5, the statement released by Liberty Media read:

"In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation Formula 1 has announced a number of race postponements in the interests of safety for our fans, the communities we visit and the F1 community. As stated recently our intention is to start the 2020 season at some point this Summer. At this time no-one can be certain of exactly when the situation will improve, but when it does, we will be ready to go racing again. We are all committed to bringing our fans a 2020 Championship Season.

"Formula 1 is currently working with our Promoters on a revised 2020 calendar with the actual sequence and schedule dates for races likely to differ significantly from our original 2020 calendar. This will be published in due course. "As previously announced we will utilise the summer break being brought forward to March/April to race during the normal summer break period, and anticipate the season end date will extend beyond our original end date of 27-29th November."
