Highest number of positive corona tests in F1 paddock to date

Since the Grand Prix season is in full swing, the corona crisis and its dangers seem to have been pushed into the background. The number of cases in the F1 paddock is the highest to date.

The FIA and Formula 1 can today confirm that between Friday 18th September and Thursday 24th September, 3,256 tests for COVID-19 have been performed on drivers, teams and personnel. Of these, seven people tested positive.
