GP Austria F1 2020 Carlos is afraid of getting it and that that makes him miss a career
Carlos Sainz admits that he fears the coronavirus. A contagion could suppose that it remained outside some race. And on top of that is the risk of being asymptomatic. As expressed his fears in a statement to 'CNN'. "You may have COVID-19 and you may not know it, you may have no symptoms or someone on the team may have no symptoms and they do and you may miss a race because of that. After four months without running and wanting to do it, you are perfectly fine and healthy , but you have tested positive for COVID-19, so you cannot run. After four months, it would be a horrible feeling and something I want to take care of so that it does not happen ", he warns.
And he adds: " You might also get it because of bad luck and against that you can't do anything . You will have to skip a couple of races for that, but the worst part would be to feel perfectly, like you feel now, having COVID-19 in your system or in your blood and not being able to run. " This makes it clear that every precaution will be little.
One of the things that will affect F1 most due to the coronavirus pandemic is that it will run without the public in the stands . Sainz admits that throwing fans less and less "before and after the race." And he elaborates on this matter: "Those moments when you are doing the drivers parade and you see the entire rostrum … Those moments when you enter a track and You see everything full of fans who support you, shouting your name, they fill you with energy and good vibes. And not having that be sad and sure different . But there will be no lack of motivation. The motivation will be extremely high and we will be ready. "
Another hot topic is the fight against racism. People are talking that F1 drivers will kneel before the start of the race as a gesture of support for the 'Black Lives Matter' movement. "We are thinking about it. I have not experienced racism in the first person, but that does not mean that it does not exist in the world so I recognize it, I admit that it exists even though I have not seen it and I want to inform myself and see what we can do to improve the situation ", points out the madrileo.
