Who drives for AlphaTauri or Red Bull in the case of a positive corona test?

So far, Sergio Perez is the only driver on the grid who has come into contact with the coronavirus. He will be replaced for the second weekend in a row by the experienced Nico Hülkenberg. Helmut Marko announces that, despite the Formula E races in Berlin, Sergio Sette-Camara would take over a seat if one of the four Red Bull Racing drivers were unable to drive.

Spare Driver of Red Bull

It doesn't happen often that a Formula 1 team has to put up a reserve driver during a Grand Prix weekend, but this year it seems more likely than ever. So far only Perez has been unable to participate in a GP weekend. But with the coronavirus lurking, another driver can be added to the list.

Red Bull Racing advisor was asked by Speedweek.com who would be the replacement when Max Verstappen, Alexander Albon, Pierre Gasly or Daniil Kvyat wouldn't be able to drive. He informed that it would be Sergio Sette Camara would then be called up. "If we need a replacement, Sette Camara must drop Formula E and come to England immediately."
