Was it really too much trouble for JT to complete this article with a reaction from the Suzuka organisers ?

It must be an absolute nightmare for these organisers to try and arrange races, travel restrictions, flight restrictions, quarantining, disinfecting, social distancing, the list goes on, then we have the issue of sponsorship, if your a sponsor of a F1 team and you have your corporate logo on full display, and rightly so as you have paid for that space, but it begs the question, are these sponsors now going to retract the advert investment? as they are not getting their brand out there, as its won't been seen on TV, and there is no one to see it at the race circuit. And since some of these companies profits have took a tumble, it makes me wonder what impact is it going to have on F1?

That’s a shame but I’m guessing the travel restrictions put in place by Japan played a big part. Just too troublesome. Might as well keep it all in Europe.
