Australian Grand Prix: Formula 1 race and Moto GP round called off

The Australian Grand Prix has been called off for the second year in a row because of the coronavirus pandemic. The Australian round of the MotoGP world championship, scheduled for 24 October, has also been cancelled. The Formula 1 event was due to take place from 19-21 November but has been abandoned because of tight border controls in Australia. Australian Grand Prix Corporation chairman Paul Little said he was “deeply disappointed” in a statement. The Australian race was only to be followed by two more in the F1 season – Saudi Arabia and the season-ending Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi. Formula 1 chief Stefano Domenicali said a 23-race season would still be possible despite the cancellation.
