Chinese Grand Prix postponed over coronavirus fears

Citing fears over the country’s coronavirus crisis, the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai was postponed.

The race was scheduled for April 19 as part of a robust 22-event season, the largest in F1 history.

Promoter Juss Sports Group formally requested the race’s postponement, which was accepted by F1. It is the first race canceled since 2011 when the Bahrain Grand Prix was called off over civil unrest.
