This weekend's Australian Grand Prix has been thrown into chaos following another positive test for coronavirus.
At least eight team personnel have now been affected in a situation fast becoming out of control.
McLaren confirmed a member of their staff had tested positive to coronavirus and would now be withdrawing from the event.
They released the following statement.
It's unlikely that F1 would want to continue without all 10-teams participating with bosses previously stating they would not go ahead without Ferrari if the Italian government had restricted travel.
