MELBOURNE, March 13 (Reuters) - No fans will be admitted to Formula One's season-opening Australian Grand Prix if the race goes ahead, the Victoria state premier Daniel Andrews said on Friday.

"On public health grounds, there will be no spectators at the Grand Prix this weekend if a race actually happens at all," Andrews told reporters in Sydney.

"That is a matter for them (organisers) and they will make announcements very soon."

The race is scheduled for Sunday. Organisers were expected to make an announcement on the race later on Friday.
