Lack of racing this season has left Lewis Hamilton feeling ‘big void’

The French Grand Prix — originally scheduled for the end of June — became the 10th race of the 2020 season to be affected by Covid-19, after organizers confirmed it would not go ahead."I miss racing every day. This is the first time since I was 8 that I haven't started a season," the 35-year-old said on social media. "When you live and breathe something you love, when it's gone there's definitely a big void. But there's always positives to take from these times."F1 CEO Chase Carey said in a statement on Monday that the racing series is aiming to have its first race in Austria on the July 3-5 weekend without fans in attendance. "We expect the early races to be without fans but hope fans will be part of our events as we move further into the schedule," he said. "We still have to work out many issues like the procedures for the teams and our other partners to enter and operate in each country."In the statement, Carey outlined plans that are being drawn up to have a truncated 2020 season, with races in Europe, before heading to Asia, then the Americas and finally the Middle East.READ: Australian Grand Prix could have gone ahead safely, says Formula One team boss
