F1 2020 From the first race in Austria a strict security protocol will be followed
The return of Formula 1, scheduled for July 5 in Austria, occur under significant security measures, as announced Tuesday the organization of the championship.
The protocol includes five measures to try to avoid any coronavirus positive, including preventive tests or social distancing, so that your events are safe.
These are the measures to be taken by Formula 1 on your return:
-Preventive tests: Anyone who attends a race will be evaluated before traveling. Giving negative at COVID-19 is a prerequisite for anyone working at the event. "There will be periodic tests performed by private medical teams during the events, along with additional tests, even upon arrival at the circuit. All local workers will be evaluated prior to the event," reported Formula 1.
-Closed events: The debut of the 2020 season will be without public in the stands. The organization of the championship hopes that fans can go to the circuits as the year progresses, but at the opening event, scheduled for July 5 in Austria, the stands will remain empty and the paddock will be much calmer than usual.
-Minimum staff: Only essential personnel will have access to the venue, so there will be a significant reduction in personnel traveling to races from all parts of the world, including teams, the FIA, suppliers and Formula 1 itself.
Some functions of a race weekend, as part of the television broadcast, will take place from remotely. In addition, on-site personnel will be required to isolate themselves in their respective units and not interact with others.
-Isolated trip: All personnel attending the races must have a negative test certificate before departure. Travel in isolation, promoting the use of charter flights as much as possible and private transfers between places, hotels and airports. The intention is to ensure that all event staff travel in a restricted 'bubble' to avoid interaction with other people.
-Social distancing: Social distancing measures will be implemented and applied throughout the 'paddock'. Pre-race and post-race activities, such as the national anthem, closed park, podiums, and cooling rooms, will be modified to ensure that safe distances can be maintained, as are media engagements and interviews.
