“It certainly increases the chances of there being a surprise champion, if there’s fewer [races], because then as well luck plays a bigger role,” Rosberg said.

“I always thought that Red Bull and Max Verstappen were really going to be in the hunt this year and really be able to annoy Mercedes in a big way and give them a big run for their money. And therefore, yeah, if there’s a shorter season maybe his chances would be even bigger.”

As well as potentially holding double-header Grand Prix weekends, F1 chiefs have considered staging races going the opposite way around tracks which are currently on the schedule.

Austria’s Red Bull Ring is one such venue which could accommodate that possible solution to the coronavirus crisis being put into action.
