The show must go on!

Does anyone know Formula One's rules on cancelled races? I'm assuming that if the Japanese Grand Prix is cancelled, it cannot be rescheduled because there are four races to go in the season and the cars, drivers, crew, maintenance staff, etc., have to head off to the country where the next race takes place.

Before F1 was privatized on Sky TV, this section would have received many comments. However, F1 has lost over 400 million viewers. No one even mentions F1 anymore on social media or in the pub. A sport chasing money and losing fans!

This has been done before at Suzuka. A nightmare, but not impossible.

So happy that this "sport" has been privatised.
