F1 has registered eleven positive cases to COVID-19 in the first half of October, bringing the total in the last 16 weeks to 38.
In the last two weeks, the category has carried out 3,141 tests on paddock personnel, the fewest since mid-July, in part due to the absence of Formula 2, which only has the double date in Bahrain, and Formula 3, whose season has already ended.
From October 2-8, on the way to the Eifel Grand Prix, three COVID-19 positive cases were reported while, from October 9-15, eight were recorded. Are included the two members of the Mercedes team who were isolated before the competition at the Nürburgring.
It also transpired that, before the Fernando Alonso Filming Day in Spain, there were two members of Renault they had to be quarantined. The French house has not confirmed or denied this information at the moment.
Alex Albon (Red Bull) gave an ‘inconclusive’ test result, although in an additional examination it returned negative.
All F1 paddock attendees must be tested for COVID-19 every five days; people who test positive should be isolated immediately, while those who have had contact with them should have additional testing.
