Of these, two people have tested positive. The individuals were not present in Austria, with the affected people removed from operations and isolated.
Tracing of close contacts completed and isolated. The FIA and Formula 1 are providing this aggregated information for the purposes of competition integrity and transparency.
No specific details as to teams or individuals will be provided by the FIA or Formula 1 and results will be made public every 7 days.
The second time
This marks the second time that there are COVID-19 cases in the Formula 1 paddock. First, we had a McLaren member testing positive just before the Austrian Grand Prix that got canceled because of this test.
While we FIA announced that they won’t announce in what team the positive cases are located, it does make us wonder has it have anything to do with Sebastian Vettel, Valtteri Bottas and Charles Leclerc breaking the Corona rules?
