An additional statement also announced changes to the scheduled autograph sessions for fans, as well as limited interaction with drivers being implemented.
“In the current environment, the Australian Grand Prix Corporation wishes to advise fans of a change to the format of both the autograph sessions and the operations of Melbourne Walk as they relate to both Formula 1 drivers and Supercars drivers at the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix 2020.
“Autograph sessions will now be conducted as Q&A interview sessions.
“Drivers will continue to utilise Melbourne Walk but will not be closely interacting with fans for selfies, autographs or other direct engagement.
