Andreas Seidl, the McLaren team principal opened up about the cancelled Canadian Grand Prix for the second year running and the doubtful Turkish Grand Prix. The Formula One management decided to cancel the North American event in wake of the strict Coronavirus rules.
The Turkish Grand Prix is set to take place next month in between June 11-13, however, the event as of now looks doubtful. Turkey is now in the list of banned areas for the Covid-19 outbreak. This made the fixture tough to host and the Formula One management are under discussions whether they should hold the event or not under such circumstances.
Canadian Grand Prix cancelled for second year. Formal announcement expected later this morning at a news conference featuring Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante, federal and provincial officials, and the race's promoter. Race was scheduled for June 13. https://t.co/qeaRAzhLY5

Seidl, the 45-year-old German Engineer in an interview conveyed, “I think you simply need to wait now, and we have a lot of trust and confidence that Formula 1 will have the right discussions in place. We need to wait for an update from Formula 1 [on] what’s happening there.”
Haas F1 boss Guenther Steiner, also added on this context, “Everything is possible but there is a limit of what you can ask people to do. We need to be respectful, because the people are not going home for six weeks. I think that’s not fair. I mean it’s good to work but at some stage, it’s not that the rest of the schedule is easy.”
McLaren are doing better this season than all of their previous few seasons. With 65 points already in their bag after four races, they stand at P3 in driver’s standings. Lando Norris, the McLaren driver who’s in superb form lately is in P4 with 41 points.
This team. 👊
From those at the track, to those back in Woking and all around the world. Nothing but love. 🧡 #SpanishGP 🇪🇸 pic.twitter.com/G5hpGC540P

Formula One this season had 23 races in their calendar. Four races are already down, and Canadian event being cancelled already, it’ll be interesting to see if the management also cancels the Turkish Grand Prix.
