SAKHIR, Bahrain – Due to the Coronavirus scare, Formula 1 will run the 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix without fans, as has been the case for the last few seasons.  “The virus will keep fans away from the 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix,” said Chase Carey, F1 CEO, “This really isn’t a huge change as the stands are typically emptier here than a NASCAR race at Indianapolis.”

Many are hoping more F1 events get cancelled so the series can get back to a normal-sized schedule and not one that was created to clearly squeeze governments for money.
