It was stupid from Liberty to even think the race would go ahead. Cash is king, as Lewis said.

Damn this sucks. I was really looking forward to Norris and Sainz after watching landos testing vlogs.

Ric to Ferrari would of course be awesome, but at this point I think that depends on Giovinazzi - if he has a strong year then I think Ferrari would prefer to have a clear #1 and #2 drivers by pairing him with Leclerc.
Seeing that most of the contracts expire at the end of this season, I see Danny Ric at Mclaren for 2021 alongside Lando, would be a fun partnership to see as their personalities will really work well together.

Dan and Lando would be a great combo and with the new rule set, hopefully McLaren will be more competitive in 2021 too.

I think the gaps will close between all the teams come 2021. Considering the ability to spend being capped at $175 million as well as the introduction of cleaner air, we're about to see some major changes to the grid.

Humble is running great deals on some of the best:

WTF? Still no official cancellation. Does everyone at the FIA have a head injury?

Fia spokesman. “For us to cancel it on our own would require less than 12 cars to be available. But other than that or from the local authourities the FIA cannot cancel because there are too many commercial agreements that in cancelling the liability would come back to us”

It's easy for a multimillionaire athlete to say that...

Particularly with events as technical as F1, there are a lot of relatively normal-sized incomes that are dependant on that money. If the millionaires, including drivers, team principals, etc, were to not only reduce their cut but also pay all the normal folk, then perhaps that would be a fair statement.

Yeah it is official now:

I don't think there was any doubt that it was going to be cancelled, just who was going to pay for it...
