The Formula One circus travelled to North America for the Canadian Grand Prix after the Monaco Grand Prix but is now travelling back to Europe for a proper triple-header. After the Grand Prix in Max Verstappen's hometown, the Red Bull advisor was a bit ill, he himself explained.

"Yes, after the weekend in Monte Carlo I was quite down," Marko explained. "I had COVID and could hardly even talk. I'm fine now," Marko told reporters back in Austria after the Canadian Grand Prix. The next race on the calendar is the Barcelona Grand Prix of Spain, followed by the home GP for Marko in Austria at the Red Bull Ring. The triple-header concludes with the race at Silverstone.
