Like every Grand Prix post, the Formula 1 and the International Automobile Federation (FIA) they released the official part of the epidemiological situation of the category paddock. There, it was discovered that 12 members of different teams were diagnosed as positive for coronavirus. It all started with some cases in the team Aston Martin, and it spread to other boxes.
In the pre-race it had been confirmed that two Aston Martin workers tested positive for COVID-19 and they were isolated from the rest. However, the cases did not end there. This Monday the FIA confirmed that at least twelve positives occurred in the bubble of the Bahrain Grand Prix. The news was released on the category’s social networks.
In this week’s statement, the FIA did not confirm the names of those who were infected, so it would not be any pilot, team leader or important personnel (leadership). «The FIA and Formula 1 can confirm today that at the 2021 Formula 1 Bahrain Grand Prix, between Monday March 22nd and Sunday March 28th, 8,150 anti-COVID-19 tests were carried out on drivers, teams and personnel ».
«Of these, 12 people tested positive for COVID-19. The FIA and Formula 1 will continue to provide this informative data at each Grand Prix. This is to promote the integrity and transparency of the competition “, they added from the international entity. The next Grand Prix will take place at the Imola circuit, the weekend of April 10.
The Formula 1 paddock rejected the Bahrain government’s proposal a few weeks ago. There the leaders offered the vaccine of Pfizer-BioNTech to immunize those who compete. Unlike MotoGPThe vast majority of the teams, especially the British, declined the proposal, understanding that there were people who needed those doses more urgently.
