Canada’s GP has become the ninth 2020 Formula 1 race to be canceled, with the season now delayed until the end of June at the earliest.

The Montreal event, scheduled to take place on June 14, has been postponed due to the coronavirus crisis – with no new date confirmed.

The promoters of the Grand Prix said the decision was not taken “lightly or easily” but that they were following “expert advice” provided by the authorities.

The French GP of June 28 is now registered for the opening of the season.

“We have been working closely with our friends at the Canadian Grand Prix for the past few weeks and helping them make this necessary decision to keep fans and the F1 community safe,” said F1 President Chase Carey.

“We are always looking forward to traveling to the incredible city of Montreal and although we will all have to wait a little longer, we will be hosting a big show when we arrive later this year. “

Of the nine races abandoned so far, only two – in Australia and Monaco – have been canceled entirely, with F1 hoping to include the other seven in their schedule later this year.

Although this schedule may look like and when it starts, it is still unknown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
