The F1 car race is expected to lose four teams if the corona virus pandemic is not resolved soon. This season has not yet been held, after several series were canceled.
F1 has made several changes, including postponing changes to the planned major technical rules from 2021 to 2022. The team agreed to use the same car next year.
But McLaren boss Zack Brown said more was needed to protect the sport and his 10 teams. ‘Can I see, through what is happening now in the world if we don’t handle this situation very aggressively, the two teams will disappear?’ Brown told the BBC on Monday (6/4).
‘Actually, I can see four teams disappearing if this isn’t handled in the right way,’ he continued.
Brown said the delay this season made several teams must be able to overcome problems from the economic side. ‘I don’t think the time could be worse from that point of view. So I think F1 is in a very fragile condition at the moment,’ Brown said.
McLaren last week became the first team to put staff on leave. That has not been added to the McLaren plan to discuss other cost savings plans.
