President of the International Federation of Motorsport, Jean Todt did not rule out that because of the crisis caused by the pandemic coronavirus, large manufacturers could leave Formula 1.
Talking about factory teams Mercedes, Ferrari and Renault and Honda, which supplies engines.
“I don’t think the current situation for the factory teams is very important to keep your place in the racing series. I’m sure many will reconsider their programs, want to get out of the sport.”
“We hope that they will maintain the motivation to continue on,” said Todt.
There were rumors about the desire of Renault and Mercedes to stop participating in the f-1 as the factory teams over the next two years.
