Grand Prix in Spain without spectators?

One of solutions for GP Spain in front of the swine fever crisis is race without spectators. All of this is becouse the region of Catalunya is the main home of infection of swine fever in Europe. Acording to Motorsport Aktuel, German Minister of Public Health Ulla Schmdit said that that a potential outbreak and public events that bring together thousands of people can not mix.

"Everyone understands that no one can gather 70,000 people if they are hundreds of them are infected," he said.

In Mexico over 150 deaths caused by swine fever led to the closure of schools, universities, museums, libraries, cinemas, theaters and churches.
A football match at the Azteca Stadium, had been played without the presence of supporters.
