In recent days there were some positive cases of COVID-19 in the paddock of MotoGP. Valentino rossi He confirmed two weeks ago that in the run-up to the Aragon Grand Prix his swab indicated that he was a carrier of the virus. Further, Jorge Martin did the same a month ago. However, from the organization of the category they exploded and launched a hard letter pointing directly at the pilots.
This Monday, a letter addressed to several members of the MotoGP paddock was leaked. This text is signed by Dorna Sports and the International Race Team Association (IRTA), in which there are no half measures about what is happening. This occurs in the framework of the second coronavirus outbreak in the most important European countries. Due to this, several rumors indicated that the championship would be suspended until the situation allows it to continue.
In the letter leaked by the website ‘Motorsport.com’ he expresses the disappointment of the organizers of the Grand Prix towards different people, who are never named. “Dorna and IRTA are very disappointed to see how many MotoGP participants chose to travel to their homes, including resorts, between the two events in Aragon,” the text begins.
In addition, the organizers expressed their concern at the constant departure from the protocol by the paddock. “The greatest danger comes from people who contract the disease at home or on the road. It is impossible to determine precisely where the infections occurred, but the evidence we have points to the disease being contracted outside the circuits, “they commented.
Recommendation for Valencia
To close, the letter leaked this Monday expresses a strong request for the pilots. “We strongly recommend that you stay with your teams or colleagues inside the bubble and not travel to your home or other places. This will minimize the possibility of being excluded from the events and, more importantly, will protect the health of all the people with whom they work ”, they sentenced.
