Verstappen not afraid of Spanish Grand Prix: I don't expect any problems

The coronavirus has regained its grip on Barcelona. The United Kingdom removed Spain from the air bridge around two agos, forcing all travellers to quarantine for 14 days upon return to the UK. So the question is whether Formula 1 would be wise to travel to Barcelona next week?

"I always stay on the track, so not much changes for me. I just stay in the bubble with just a few people around me. I will also go straight to my motorhome from the airport and will stay there for the next few days, as I did in previous races," Lewis Hamilton said, according to the BBC.

Verstappen likes to go to Spain

The winner of the second Grand Prix in Silverstone is not worried about that either. "You ensure that you have as little contact with other people as possible, so I don't really expect any problems. It is not only in Spain where the coronavirus is. You have to be careful everywhere," says Max Verstappen.

A spokesman for Formula 1 then said that there is no problem at all to drive in Spain. "We look forward to driving in Spain and Belgium. We make sure that the security is guaranteed, because that is ultimately the most important. That is why we will continue to test extensively for those races, "F1 spokesman concluded.
