The Formula 1 community will continue to travel with stringent safety measures that have allowed them to travel safely this season. So far this season they have conducted over 56,000 PCR tests with only 38 positive cases at a rate of 0.06%
Alongside this a significant proportion of the F1 community has been vaccinated already and F1 are confident that all will have had the opportunity to do so by the end of the summer.
They will continue to operate in a way that protects the safety of their personnel and the communities F1 visits.
