Bit of a relief for the teams anyways considering how packed the schedule is starting to get.

Won't they just reassign tracks? Like move this one to later in the year?
AFAIK the options are flip it with Russia or move it to after Hungary. Russia don't want to swap and the teams sure as hell don't want to shorten their summer break so it's looking pretty bleak at the moment.

I'm down here in St. Petersburg now at my condo, drinking my six a.m. coffee. Sitting here on my deck, looking out into the darkness waiting and wondering about the new race year.

It is certainly kinda scary thinking about traipsing around three + days next to so many people. There certainly is that excitement of the race and the undertow of being sick and dieing.

All hand sanitizer and alcohol is gone from every shelf in town. Whisked away like a kidnapped child.

I could always wait and drive back south at a later date. I come down several times a year anyway. I'm old enough to be retired AND at my age, be a prime candidate for getting the virus.

I worry about the drivers, too- handling everything during the autograph session.

Thursday night they're supposed to have the cars and the drivers downtown at one of the local parks. I'll probably go.

I'm worried for my son, too. He lives and works down here- at the 7/11 across the street, where hundreds of people go through every day.

I guess that is why I just said my prayer. And I'll continue to sit here hoping.

Looking at my empty coffee cup. I guess I'm ready for another one so that I can come back and stare out into the darkness and hope.

Jimmy.

Jimmy - Do a little hand sanitizer and enjoy. We need your pics and reports from the ground.
Maybe you will run across Letterman again ! Here is a link to Corona status in Fla. Hope it will
ease your mind.

I feel like we are a couple of days from learning F1 2020 season will be scrapped.
