F1 personnel are not allowed to come out of accommodation in Hungary

In Hungary they have very severe penalties when the strict lockdown restrictions in the country are violated. Formula 1 drivers and team staff have been warned that they risk a fine of €15,000 or may even end up in prison.

Strict rules in Hungary

As part of its efforts to counter the spread of the coronavirus, the Hungarian government has confirmed that F1 personnel should work under an effective lockdown. In particular, people from the United Kingdom and non-EU countries are being closely monitored.

Motorsport.com has seen a note sent to the teams on Saturday morning. It contains the following information about people from the UK and outside the EU: "These people will not leave their accommodation for any reason, only to travel to and from the track and the planned trip to and from Hungary."

Race three of the season

The Hungarian Grand Prix is already planned next weekend and will be the first race of the season outside Austria. After the race in Hungary the F1 will have a weekend off after which two races will be held at Silverstone.
