Supercars champion Scott McLaughlin has praised the motorsport community in its response to fighting the COVID-19 pandemic which has forced a halt to the 2020 season.

McLaughlin opened his title defence with a win on the streets of Adelaide in February, but may not be able to resume his battle with his rivals on track until at least June with three events postponed.

In response to the layoff, Supercars has organised an online All Stars Eseries, which will feature all 25 championship drivers, with 18 tracks to host 10 events in 10 weeks.

McLaren became the first Formula 1 team to furlough staff because of the coronavirus on Wednesday, with drivers Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz joining senior management in taking a pay cut.

“These measures are focused on protecting jobs in the short-term to ensure our employees return to full-time work as the economy recovers,” McLaren added.

British Grand Prix organisers set April deadline on F1 race’s future amid virus crisis

Published

on

British Grand Prix organisers have set an end of April deadline to decide whether the country’s Formula 1 race goes ahead as scheduled in July or becomes another casualty of the coronavirus.

The British summer has also seen the famed Wimbledon tennis major cancelled. The race, a highlight of a British sporting summer that looks likely to be wiped out by the pandemic, has been the best attended on the F1 calendar in recent seasons with a total crowd of 351,000 last year.

The Sunday turnout at the former World War Two airfield in central England was 141,000 in 2019, with the race close to home for seven of the sport’s 10 teams including six-times world champion Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes. Britain’s Hamilton won at Silverstone last year for a record sixth time.
