    The irony with 'all wheel steering' is that was automatic with rigid rear axles and leaf springs, body roll induced rear wheel steering, fortunately in the right direction!!!

    not sure what's going on - may be cancelled after all... Lewis isn't happy that it is still appearing to be proceeding.

    Hi Nick.

    I thought about you when I heard this news. I hope you can still make a good weekend of it, but I'd be surprised if the rave goes ahead now . Some positive news - the Haas personnel have tested negative.

    Our trip to Hanoi is in tatters....even if the F1 race goes ahead (which I doubt) it is not now possible for people from the UK to enter Vietnam (visa waiver scheme suspended, visas not being issued....and our travel insurance co. don't want to know!)

    They'd better let them race but without any spectators.

    Cars were running on track earlier this morning - we were planning to arrive an hour or so before F1 first practice starts, but that won't now happen.We saw other cars on track yesterday - F5000, TCR, Supercars and Porsche Carrera Cup, sat in our assigned seats for a while and had a good walk round the pits and the general admission areas.
    Still gutted. Hopefully New Order will be playing tomorrow night...

    With the news changing daily it’s hard to know for sure, however latest news suggests this years championship won’t get going till at least May this year with the first 3 or 4 races suspended ...

    It's too soon for anyone to sensibly predict how things will pan out....so I'll have a go!!!

    IF (that's a big 'if'!) they can get the circus back up and running by Monaco or Baku, I think the summer break will go, Abu Dhabi will.ne pushed to ~mid December making room for perhaps an 18 race season of they have a couple of triple headers (which will probably be 2-day race weekends.

    Meanwhile, I can amuse (!) myself trying to claim back money for our abandoned Hanoi trip.

    Safe travels home Nick.

    Thanks - New Order played and it was great! Back on topic, I doubt F1 will be more than a dozen rounds this year, if that.
