Formula 1 racing is one of the most popular sports in the world. Every year, hundreds of thousands of motorbike enthusiasts and road racers turn out for the Formula 1 season. For some, the race is more than just a competition: it is a way of life. For others, the Formula 1 season is only a fun diversion from their regular lives. For every category of motorbike enthusiasts, there’s a different reason for tuning into the Formula 1 races. If you share this passion with others, there are a few things that you can do to support your favorite teams and drivers during the season.

Formula One Racing Latest Updates

A couple of weeks ago, the Formula 1 schedule was canceled by the organizers of the popular Dubai Grand Prix. Formula 1 was originally scheduled to return to the race track in October. With the tragic September terrorist attacks in the UAE, however, the race was immediately canceled. A couple of weeks later, in the middle of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend, news leaked that the race would not take place because of security reasons. The move prompted an angry backlash from Formula 1 teams and drivers, who believe that the cancellation was a transparent ploy to overshadow the real event.

While no one could exactly pin the blame on the government, several factors were pointed in their direction. One was the deadly stampede that happened at the Al Hajar Mountains outside of Abu Dhabi. Hundreds of mourners, many of them sportbike riders, had to make a detour to the race due to safety concerns. Another was the discovery of a human skull under suspicious circumstances at the Thoroughbred Congress in Bologna, Italy. While authorities are still trying to determine the cause of the death, local officials expressed hope that the accident was only a natural occurrence.

In addition to the stampede, another potential problem for the race in Abu Dhabi is the arrival of the new pandemic – the Swine Flu. It has only been a few months since the last swine flu case was reported, but the infection has already spread to five countries in the Middle East. Efforts to contain the disease have included closing down large populations of people, vaccination of horses and other animals, and the drilling of holes in the ground to allow air to circulate. All of these measures, however, have so far failed to halt the rapidly spreading pandemic.

If the virus spreads into the other nations of the region, it could cause severe epidemics throughout the region. The threat would be comparable to the current global pandemic, which has killed tens of thousands of people. Health officials in Abu Dhabi and other Formula 1 race tracks are watching for any signs of the virus, which can result in the onset of serious health problems, such as FIV, or hereditary immune deficiency syndrome. With all of the precautions, however, it is unlikely that the threat will materialize, and formula one drivers have every reason to be confident that they will be able to keep themselves healthy during the race.

One of the concerns that officials have had, due to the prevalence of the swine flu, is the possibility of an outbreak of a new disease. This does not appear to be a major issue, especially since April has not yet reached its peak. In addition, authorities have long ago learned how to contain and quell outbreaks before they occur, so the chances of a new disease appearing on the circuit in April remain slim. However, the increased interest in the sport may prompt race organizers to take steps to ensure that the circuit does not experience a major pandemic in its popular run through April and May.

Perhaps the biggest question mark hanging over the race in Abu Dhabi is the long-term effects of the ongoing Formula 1 season. Will there be enough interest in the sport to sustain the revenue that it is generating? If the answer is no, that would mean that the race might have to be canceled altogether, since it is costing the company very large sums of money. For now, the answer is probably “not for this season.”


A stone wall

The United States government has long been advocating the scheduling of f1 races outside of the United States. There are financial benefits to doing this, and it would encourage racing fans throughout the world to tune into the race. If something were to happen, though, the American government would stand behind the decision to assure that the citizens of the seven states where Formula one events happen can watch the sport. The governments of Canada and Mexico are currently working on contingency plans for possible pandemic outbreaks, but they have not yet decided whether or not they will follow suit.
