Formula One reveals an additional three races have been cancelled.

World Championship 2020 street races  in Singapore and Baku won’t be going ahead as well as fan favourite Suzuka in Japan.

In a statement from F1 “As a result of the ongoing challenges presented by COVID-19, we and our promoters in Azerbaijan, Singapore and Japan have taken the decision to cancel our races for the 2020 season”.

“These decisions have been taken due to the different challenges our promoters face in those countries”. In Singapore, Azerbaijan and Japan the long lead times required to construct street circuits made hosting the events during a period of uncertainty impossible, ongoing travel restrictions also led to the decision not to proceed with the races.

The F1 stated “At the same time we have made significant progress with existing and new promoters on the revised calendar, and have been particularly encouraged by the interest that has been shown by new venues in hosting a Formula 1 race during the 2020 season”.

“We appreciate this is still a time of uncertainty and complexity around the world and will continue to ensure we proceed with the 2020 season in a cautious and flexible way. We have detailed and robust safety plans in place to ensure we begin our season in the safest possible way”, stated the F1 team.

Although this now means the tally of cancelled GPs equals seven, organisers are still optimistic of staging 15 to 18 races this season.

So far, 8 races have been confirmed in Europe to be raced over the months of July, August and September with more to be confirmed on the horizon.
