    They'll end up painting Paul Ricard to make it look like SIC.

    This puts a month off in between the new races in Vietnam and Holland, hopefully Vietnam doesn't get cancelled.

    The F1 site says it is, "postponed due to coronavirus outbreak" "The Chinese Grand Prix has always been a very important part of the F1 calendar and the fans are always incredible," Formula 1 said in a statement. "We all look forward to racing in China as soon as possible and wish everyone in the country the best during this difficult time."

    Germany can't afford to pay the fees like China.

    Beijing motor show likely to be postponed due to coronavirus

    Global automotive industry may be forced to shut down more major events as the virus spreads

    https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/motor-shows-beijing-motor-show/beijing-motor-show-likely-be-postponed-due-coronavirus

    Speculation is growing that the Beijing motor show in April will be postponed in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

    This would follow the postponed Formula 1 race in Shanghai and the cancelled Mobile World Congress technology show in Barcelona.

    A two-day Chinese Grand Prix between the Brazilian and Abu Dhabi Formula 1 races has emerged as one option to get the event back on the calendar, Autosport has learned.

    The outbreak of coronavirus in China forced race promoters to postpone the original event, which had been due to take place in Shanghai on April 19.

    Even before that decision was made though, F1 chiefs were clear that they would look at all possibilities to try to reschedule the race later in the year - despite the difficulties of finding space for it.

    The late-season run of races leaves no obvious gap for it to be slotted in - with one widely-talked possibility being that it takes place on the November 29 date that Abu Dhabi was originally down for, with the Yas Marina event then shifting back a week.

    However, sources have revealed that a bolder plan is also being evaluated that would leave Abu Dhabi on its original date.

    The proposal is for the Chinese GP to take place on November 22, as part of a triple header with Brazil and Abu Dhabi.

    While there are big logistical problems to overcome in terms of getting freight shifted from Sao Paulo to Shanghai in time, one way to help ease the stress is to compress the Chinese weekend.
