2021 F1 rules overhaul to be postponed
Chase Carey

As a result of the ongoing coronavirus there is talk of extending the F1 championship into 2021.

This would in turn mean delaying the proposed rules overhaul until 2022 or even later.

"At this point our focus really is dealing with the issues this weekend," Chase Carey told media in Melbourne. "Clearly, I just came in from Vietnam, so we are in discussion with partners on the upcoming races.

"At this point what we really want to do is make sure we deal with the issues here, and deal with them properly," he continued. "But in the coming days, clearly we will be addressing the events yet to come.

"It's a pretty difficult situation to really predict," he admitted, "everybody uses the word fluid, it is obviously a fluid situation. The situation today is different than it was two days ago, which is different than it was four days ago. So trying to look out and make those sorts of predictions when it's changing this quickly is challenging."

"Everybody wants an answer and we'd love to have an answer," he replied, when asked where the next race might be. "I think you can't force an answer to something that right now you don't have an answer to.

"We just have to continue doing what we're doing, reaching out to everybody, every expert, we can around the world. Clearly we're a global sport. And therefore, you know, we're not just dealing with a single country issue, we're dealing with an array of complexities. But I think we have to continue to deal with those as the situation evolves."
