All four drivers from Red Bull's team, Max Verstappen , Sergio Perez, Pierre Gasly, and Yuki Tsunoda have now had two vaccinations against the coronavirus. That's what Helmut Marko said this weekend. The Red Bull Racing advisor himself has only had one.

In Bahrain the teams and drivers had the opportunity to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Marko missed out on that opportunity and is following the regular vaccination schedule in Austria. He recently received the first vaccination from AstraZeneca. At 77 years of age, Marko belongs to the risk group.

Vaccination Austria

"Unfortunately we do very poorly in Austria in terms of vaccination," Marko told German RTL. Whether or not spectators will be allowed at the Austrian Grand Prix in July is still uncertain. Much will depend on developments in the coming weeks. "We have to wait and see."

Incidentally, Verstappen did not get vaccinated in Bahrain. On arrival for the first race of the season the Dutchman told De Telegraaf that he had already had two shots. We know for sure that Perez had his vaccination with Pfizer. Where Tsunoda and Gasly were vaccinated is unknown. Gasly and Perez have already been infected with coronavirus.
