ANKARA (AA) – Formula 1 announced Friday that the Japan, Singapore and Azerbaijan Grands Prix will not be part of the 2020 season due to concerns over the new coronavirus.

"These decisions have been taken due to the different challenges our promoters face in those countries. In Singapore and Azerbaijan the long lead times required to construct street circuits made hosting the events during a period of uncertainty impossible and in Japan, ongoing travel restrictions also led to the decision not to proceed with the race,'' it said.
