Jan.29 - The 'ghost race' era in Formula 1 is not over yet.

Stefano Bonaccini, the president of the Emilia Romagna region in Italy, has admitted that Imola's new 18 April race will at best welcome "limited" numbers of spectators.

Imola was drafted in to fill the calendar slot following the cancellation of the scheduled round in China.

"We all hope that on that date it will already be possible to have the public in the stands, even if it is in a limited way," Bonaccini said on Thursday.

He also revealed that the official name of the race will be the 'grand prix of Made in Italy and Emilia-Romagna'.

    Why limit the number of people? The virus isn't what they say. Look at India, hardly a 1st world country, living in multigenerational homes, poor sanitation, very limited healthcare and more than a few people. Yesterday USA 2421 India 22 deaths. If this was the slate wiper that they say it is India would be toast. They aren't casue they don't play this political viruses game.

        Well lets use some common sense shall we.

        If this virus is ANYWHERE near as deadly as the powers that be say it is then there would be MILLIONS of dead bodies littering the streets wouldn't there.

        Since I have seen NO REPORTS of that from anyone then I have to believe it is NOT HAPPENING.

        Please refute my logic.
