It's Go! Go! Go! But At A Distance

When Lewis Hamilton renews his quest for Formula One supremacy this weekend, it will be against a very different backdrop.

Nearly four months after the season was due to start, Hamilton and his 19 rivals, as well as the teams and fans, will have to come to terms with a “new normal”.

The opening races of the season will, for the first time, be held behind closed doors with no spectators, sponsors, VIPs, or guests.

Other changes in F1’s framework include teams having to stay in “bubbles within bubbles”, while armchair fans will notice a new look to the televised coverage.
