If the formula starts 1 at the beginning of July in Spielberg again, then she is confident that you will have the theme COVID-19 in the handle. Nevertheless, some of the drivers expected to be in the field with a bit of skepticism on the go – how about Max Verstappen. Because of the low-countries, is quite “timid”, such as Red Bull motor sport consultant Helmut Marko to ‘RTL’ reveals.

“We had planned a couple of events, but if the security measures were not really the best, has he canceled on you,” says the Austrian. Because the Coronavirus capture the wanted Verstappen in any case – and which sees Marko is absolute: “He wants to be the youngest world champion, and any risk out of the way.”

Marko doesn’t believe that it could be made in terms of the Corona problems for the drivers. Most of them, like Verstappen – to live in Monaco, where the safety precautions were very strict. “You could leave, Yes, only a few hours in the house. So, the well is isolated and prepared here,” the Red Bull man.

What is missing from the drivers in Spielberg, however, is driving practice. While many have held the virtual race fit, but to drive in a real race car, is something entirely different. Some, therefore, expect that the race in Spielberg may well be a little more chaotic than usual – also Marko.

“If it is hot, and this is in July, well, then it may be that it is not the usual condition and, therefore, not the concentration is there,” he says. “But for the audience this is, of course, an additional voltage factor.”
