Formula One said on Friday it hoped to start its 2020 season in Europe at the end of May after cancelling this weekend's Australian opener and postponing the next three races in Bahrain, Vietnam and China due to the coronavirus.

An end of May date would also appear to rule out the Dutch and Spanish races currently scheduled for May 3 and 10 in Zandvoort and Barcelona. Monaco, a highlight of the year, is round seven on May 24.
