Quarantine rule forced Melbourne postponement

It was Australia’s 14-day mandatory quarantine requirement that triggered the postponement of the season opening grand prix in Melbourne. “Tennis has been able to do that, but it’s not something that has been possible for Formula 1,” he said on Wednesday. “When you look at the arrangements of setting up very, very big businesses, big organisations and the logistics and challenges they face coming into a new season, it wasn’t possible to have them operate in a strict quarantine arrangement,” he said. “They (tennis) were prepared to do that, and I accept the circumstances in F1 are somewhat different. Had they (tennis) not been able to do that we may have been having a similar conversation with tennis.”.
