Welcome Llynfi, and welcome back to the other four! I'm sure a few more will join us. The first few tipping threads will be up sometime today, I hope.

First three tipping threads are up, which because of the postponement of China, takes us to the end of April. My computer is being really slow and annoying, so more threads (and a decision on how to number them) will wait for another day.

Could this pleased be linked to F1 in the forum header?

I'm having to do the same for MLB, Liz, hence why there are no threads up yet.

From FAQs at formula1.com

Quote:
When will the F1 season start?

Given the constantly evolving situation with the pandemic, at the moment it is not possible to say for certain when racing will be able to resume, but F1 CEO Chase Carey said: “While at present no-one can be certain of exactly when the situation will improve, it will improve and when it does, we will be ready to go racing again. We are all committed to bringing our fans a 2020 Championship Season,” adding: “we and our partners fully expect the season to start at some point this summer.”

Which races have already been postponed or cancelled?

So far, the first eight races of the season have been postponed or cancelled. These are: The Australian Grand Prix (cancelled), the Bahrain Grand Prix (postponed), the Vietnam Grand Prix (postponed), the Chinese Grand Prix (postponed), the Dutch Grand Prix (postponed), the Spanish Grand Prix (postponed), the Monaco Grand Prix (cancelled) and the Azerbaijan Grand Prix (postponed).
Will any more races be postponed or cancelled?

Chase Carey told fans that there is “significant potential” for additional postponements, but none have been announced yet.

F1, the FIA and all the relevant promoters and race authorities are in constant communication about all the remaining races on the calendar, and if any more are postponed, there will be full details on F1.com.
How many races will we get in 2020?

The current aim is to stage between 15 and 18 races in 2020.


This is from a post dated today 30 March 2020.

Latest is a tentative start in Austria on July 5, probably without fans. The statement is here:

July 5 is still the probable start date: two races in Austria followed by two at Silverstone.

Quote:
That is problematic for F1 as the sport seeks to achieve its aim to hold a World Championship with between 15 and 18 races, starting with two races on consecutive weekends in Austria on 5 and 12 July. Under current plans, the races at the Red Bull Ring would be followed by two events at Silverstone, if F1 can find a way around the quarantine restrictions ...

Meanwhile, the Belgian government has given the go-ahead for its grand prix to be held behind closed doors at Spa-Francorchamps on its original date of 30 August. A deal has not yet been struck with F1, but Spa general manager Vanessa Maes told Belgian media she expected this to happen in the coming days. Belgium is one of the countries at which F1 hopes to hold the second tranche of European races, after Austria and the UK.

Thank you! First three (through July) should be ready now. Haven't been able to find exact start times, but will update when I do.

Tippers can stand by your original tips, if you've made one, or go for something different (for these races only). Please just make it clear to me which you are doing.

Also, please don't anybody use yellow to highlight your tips. I can't read it at all if you do. smile

Weekly Report
  • Congratulations to this week’s winner, the first of the new season, spanishliz, who benefited from lucky picks!
  • Welcome back everyone, and a special welcome to new tipper Llynfi. It is good to see you all again after such a very long off season!
  • The point for fastest lap didn't benefit anyone, and none of us plumped for Norris.
  • The large number of non-finishers meant that nobody had three picks finish the race, and therefore no bonus points have been awarded. The bonus, when awarded, is included in her weekly score.
  • The Wooden Spoon goes to newcomer Llynfi and ozzz2002, who were unlucky enough to have two DNFs.
  • Note that penalties applied after the checkered flag, even if already known, do not affect our competition, which goes by "as they cross the line".
  • The next race is next Sunday, June 12th, also at the Red Bull Ring in Austria, so remember to get your tips in .
