We know, it’s been a loooong time since we last had a show - but F1’s been shutdown and we’ve had stuff happening….

In F1 - The Dutch Grand Prix has become the fourth race of the season to be officially cancelled.

Maybe we’ll get a revised calendar this week?

When we do get a calendar, the season will likely start with 2 races in Austria and then 2 races at Silverstone.

The cost cap has dropped, rules have changed, but it’s still unlikely that reverse grid races will happen.

McLaren is struggling, and so is Williams - and for some reason Williams has terminated their sponsorship with Rokit.

Mercedes insists it’s staying in F1, and so does Renault.

Meanwhile Ferrari admits that they’re considering entering IndyCar - but likely without Sebastian Vettel who will be departing the team at the end of the season.

Carlos Sainz Jr is headed to Ferrari for 2021, and Daniel Ricciardo will be leaving Renault to partner with Lando Norris at McLaren next year.

Maybe they’ll be a new team on the grid in 2022 - and Vijay Mallya still hasn’t been extradited…
