Raikkonen wasn't the only one to test positive for Coronavirus at Zandvoort

The Formula 1 circus is still not rid of the coronavirus. Since last season the sport has a strict coronavirus policy to prevent infections as much as possible. Nevertheless, there were again several infections detected last weekend.

Everyone tested

Both before and during a Grand Prix weekend, all team members are tested for the coronavirus. Last weekend a total of 6,691 tests were taken from drivers, team members, staff of the F1 organisation and other people involved with the Dutch Grand Prix.

A total of sixteen people tested positive for coronavirus, the FIA. That is comparable to the number of infections one week earlier in Spa. In Belgium fifteen people tested positive for the virus. The most striking contamination in Zandvoort was of course that of Kimi Raikkonen. The Finnish driver, driving his last Formula 1 season, was replaced by Robert Kubica on Saturday.
