Vettel will sleep in the Red Bull Ring for added security

The paddock of the Austrian Grand Prix, which will be the first race of the 2020 season of Formula 1, begins to take shape, with the facilities almost ready, but also with the presence of some pilots who undergo the test to detect if they are carriers of COVID-19.

Most of the staff have flown in through the airport Graz, close to the circuit, but there are also those who arrived in Spielberg by car and, others, by train.

The assembly work of the structures that the teams will use are nearing completion, but there will be a novelty regarding the areas that will be available to the pilots of Formula 1.

With the idea of ​​being away from any risk of contagion or before a large influx of people such as in a hotel, some pilots, including Sebastian Vettel, have chosen to sleep on the circuit in motor homes.

The organization has given them a parking space that is generally dedicated to the public or for promotional activities.

Formula 1 drivers as well as staff from teams that are part of the category “biosphere” have to complete tests by COVID-19 every five days to ensure a clean environment within the paddock.
