The Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai has been postponed over the novel coronavirus outbreak.
In a statement, F1 governing body FIA said the Chinese Grand Prix Promoter, Juss Sports Group, officially requested the postponement after ongoing discussions with the country's sports authorities.
The FIA and F1 said it would continue monitoring the situation and explore the "viability of potential alternative dates for the Grand Prix later in the year should the situation improve."
"The Chinese Grand Prix has always been a very important part of the F1 calendar and the fans are always incredible," F1 said in a statement. "We all look forward to racing in China as soon as possible and wish everyone in the country the best during this difficult time."
