A report claims that the Azerbaijan Grand Prix is soon to be added to the list of indefinitely postponed races.

The coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc on the world’s sporting series as one by one countries take measures to try to stop the spread.

This not only saw the Australian Grand Prix cancelled, but later Bahrain, Vietnam, Dutch and Spain joined China in postponing their grands prix. Monaco cancelled its race.

Baku was therefore down, at least in pencil, to open the 2020 season in June.

That race, though, is now on the line.

According to Autosport, organisers of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix will announce on Monday that the country is postponing its race.

As the grand prix takes place on a street circuit, constructions of the various temporary facilities was expected to begin in the coming weeks however that’s on hold.

‘High level sources say that confirmation of the Baku event being called off will be made on Monday, but it is understood that the race promoters still hold out hope of finding a slot later in the year,’ reports Autosport.

Should Baku postpone its grand prix, the next race in Canada in Montreal on 14 June.
