The last weekend at the Enzo e Dino Ferrari circuit in Imola, the team Williams was left empty-handed. The race could have been one of the best tests of the season. However, the abandonment of George Russell, and the weak result of Nicholas latifi, they left the British team without points.
Still, the test on Italian soil could not have gone worse. This Saturday it was confirmed that several members of the Williams team were isolated after testing positive for coronavirus (COVID-19). Through a statement, the structure gave details of what happened Post-race. In addition, some of the infections occurred at the Portuguese Grand Prix.
«From Williams, we announce that we have had several positives for COVID-19 during the course of the Portuguese and Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. We are not going to detail who they are individually, but we confirm that all of them are following the guidelines of the FIA to guarantee the safety of the rest, “they assured from the team.
The team members who were infected will not be at the Turkish Grand Prix next weekend, as they will not be able to recover optimally to be on the Istanbul circuit. Other team members who were very close to them are also isolated for prevention, they added.
Finally, from Williams they confirmed that the protocols have already been launched. “We will follow our internal protocols, and therefore, factory personnel will replace the positives for the next Turkish GP. We hope you understand that we will not give any additional information on the positives, but we thank the factory staff who will travel to Turkey for their great support in these difficult times. “
