Chinese Formula One Grand Prix postponed due to coronavirus

April's Formula One Chinese Grand Prix has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The FIA say they'll work with Formula One to find a way to put the race on later in the year, if the situation improves.

Motorsport's world governing body will also continue to monitor if the spread of the virus could impact other global events.

"We recognise this certainly creates uncertainty about the ability to host an event in China," F1 Chairman Chase Carey told Sky Sports earlier.

"The hope is that people will have a better handle on this pretty quickly it emerged quite quickly, the cases outside China, really the district in China, are still limited in number.

"We're very aware of it and we will continue to monitor it and deal accordingly. Obviously safety for our fans and our teams, everybody in the sport, is first and foremost.

"So we'll be thoughtful and thorough and we are continuing to monitor and engage with the appropriate authorities and appropriate experts.

"Part of the challenge is that you don't really know the time-frame, so it's difficult to say what time works.

"China's a very important partner. We've been excited by the growth in that partnership.

"But again we recognise what is first and foremost important. We'll work with our Chinese partners to try and see, when we know more, what options might exist."
