When will F1 return? Lewis Hamilton set to begin title defence in Austria amid major doubts over British Grand Prix

The new Formula One season is yet to get under way as the sport battles the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton won his sixth F1 Championship last season, claiming glory in 11 races to romp to the title.

But the defence of his crown has been put on hold as the world of racing tries to deal with the virus.

The 2020 campaign was supposed to start on March 15 with the Australian Grand Prix but that had to be cancelled and no action has taken place since.

There are plenty of questions surrounding the sport and when it will finally get going.
