The relatively compact Formula 1 caravan has faced the first two corona cases since the late start of the season.


The F1 organization and the international motorsport federation FIA announced the two positive cases on Friday in Budapest on the first training day of the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Names and positions of the persons involved were not mentioned. They have gone into isolation, as have the people with whom they have been in close contact.

The two infected individuals were not present at the Steiermark Grand Prix in Spielberg, Austria, according to F1 and FIA last week.

Between Friday last week and last Thursday, nearly 5,000 corona tests were conducted in the “bubble” of Formula 1.

The Formula 1 season started at the beginning of this month with the Austrian Grand Prix, also on the track in Spielberg.

All participants, officials, technicians and other officials on the track must meet extensive and stringent health and safety requirements. The public is not yet welcome at the races.

Just before the F1 season started in March, someone in the McLaren racing stable was found to be infected with the coronavirus. Partly because of this, the Australian Grand Prix was cancelled at the last minute.
