The Australian Formula One Grand Prix is still expected to go ahead on 15 March, but fans could be locked out if three members of the Haas and McLaren teams test positive for the coronavirus. They have been placed in isolation pending the outcome of the tests. All three recently arrived in Australia, and spectators will be forced to watch the race on TV if they test positive and are deemed to have caught the virus in Australia. The opening race of the F1 season at Albert Park had been expected to attract more than 300,000 fans over four days.
