The panic surrounding coronavirus does not seem to affect Romain Grosjean as he was seen kitesurfing after receiving news of the Australian Grand Prix cancellation.
With the cancellation of many events, flights, and even vacations, one F1 driver took time off to go to the seas. F1 Team Haas Racing’s Romain Grosjean decided to ignore the noise surrounding Coronavirus COVID-19 and decided to go kitesurfing at Zu Boardsports on St. Kilda beach.
He did so after receiving news of the cancellation of the Australian Grand Prix on Friday, March 13th. The other countries to postpone the Grand Prix are Bahrain and Vietnam. This implies that Grosjean will have more time off enjoying his favourite activity.

Romain Grosjean Ignores Coronavirus and Enjoys Kitesurfing
Grosjean decided to go kitesurfing the same day he received news of the cancellation of the Australian Grand Prix. He also posted pictures on his Instagram for the same. Grosjean, who is no stranger to kitesurfing, was last seen kitesurfing in Mauritius.
Claire Williams Worried of William’s Financial Situation
Although the postponement of F1 due to COVID-19 allows drivers to enjoy more leisure time, it also comes with an alarming rate of panic. Panic increases as fears grow over the spread of the coronavirus. Recently, Claire Williams, deputy director of ROKiT Williams Racing, voiced her concerns over the impact of cancelling or postponing races. She highlighted that her team’s revenues would decrease if race participation decreases as a result of the coronavirus scare.
While the drivers may be enjoying their freed schedules, the outbreak of coronavirus has vastly impacted all spheres of society. Despite the coronavirus concerns, if more F1 drivers are thinking like Romain Grosjean, you will find more drivers and teams enjoying their time off as a result of the uncertainty surrounding the start of the season.
