Formula 1: Hungarian Grand Prix to be held without fans

Hungarian Grand Prix organisers have said the race will have to be held without spectators this year as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
The country's government announced on Thursday a ban on all gatherings of more than 500 people until 15 August.
Organisers said they had "pursued all possible ways" to stage the event with fans but this was "no longer possible".
They added: "It is now evident that any F1 race in Hungary can now only be held behind closed doors."
The statement said that holding a race without spectators was "not an ideal scenario [but] we do believe that staging the event behind closed doors - which our fans can still watch on television - is preferable to not having a race at all.
