“Clearly we recognize our sport is one which at times, we can’t have two metres between every individual on a team. When a car pulls into a pit and has to change four tyres, there won’t be two metres between every individual. We need to make sure we have procedures to manage all those risks as soon as possible.” Chase Carey added that they have learnt their lesson from Australia incident.
“An individual having been found with a positive infection will not lead to a cancellation of a race,” “We encourage teams to have procedures in place so if an individual has to be put in quarantine, we have the ability to quarantine them at a hotel and to replace that individual” as quoted to F1.
F1 has significantly reduced the number of people from support staff, and the broadcasting team will also operate with minimum staff.
