Formula One season on the brink of COLLAPSE as Singapore GP is cancelled and Japan, Brazil, Mexico and Australia all face Covid nightmares to leave Lewis Hamilton and Co sweating

The Singapore Grand Prix has been cancelled, as Formula One bosses work frantically to stop their planned 23-race programme from shattering. Races in Japan, Brazil, Mexico and Australia are also in jeopardy for various Covid-related reasons. Australia’s strict quarantine rules mean that there is not enough time for them to get into the country after the preceding Brazilian GP – but experts have suggested they go through a ’boutique quarantine’ partly in the UK. Singaporean authorities pulled their race, scheduled for October 3, because of travel restrictions stopping people entering their country. Australia’s plans for their November 21 race in Melbourne currently allow only fully-vaccinated personnel being allowed to travel to and participate in the autumn meet. Furthermore, any positive case found once the Melbourne meet begins is likely to result in not only the immediate cancellation of the Grand Prix but also a city-wide lockdown.
