Looks like the whole thing was a bit of a s**t show. Fans were left waiting at the gates while F1 staff waited until the last minute to make a decision. Very inconsiderate for the fans, not to mention it put them at risk of catching something while waiting (i.e. instead of making the decision earlier and informing the fans not to come to the track).

It also seems some drivers started making their way back home before the official announcement was made, further reinforcing an announcement could have been made earlier.

More details from F1 accredited journalist Joe Saward:

Quote:
The teams met on Thursday night and voted whether to race or not. Mercedes, Red Bull, AlphaTauri and Racing Point voted to go ahead, while Ferrari, Renault and Alfa Romeo voted not to. McLaren did not attend the meeting, while Williams and Haas abstained. However after the vote Mercedes changed its position after discussions with headquarters and thus the vote went from 4-3 to 3-4.

...

It remains to be seen if Bahrain can go ahead but the word is that Vietnam has already been cancelled.

Fighting...unbelievable how people turn aggressive in these situation.
I've been to a supermarket which is in an out of the way place, just a few people in store and everything in stock..! I'm avoiding Costco and Aldi as huge queues in those stores.

I'm just wondering if it's a matter of time before smaller scale motorsports events (SCCA,NASA, GTA, etc) follow suit.

Indycar's shutting it down, too. Haven't seen anything from NASCAR

I would assume they'd follow suit.

NASCAR initially decided to run the next two races behind closed doors. They have since cancelled the next two races at Atlanta and Homestead.

Well, Formula E decided to halt the entire season for the time being. If the situation doesn't improve in the next few months, we could very well be looking at more cancellations on F1.

I went to smaller Tesco in this out of way place. The other massive one with adjoining petrol station will be packed at this time with people returning from work.
Hope theres no trouble there!

JD said events are going on unless they are forced to not have them by local jurisdictions. They will lock out fans if they have to in order for the competition to go on.
