Formula 1’s Managing Director Ross Brawn says the championship cannot become complacent over coronavirus, warning that it has to be “totally relied upon” to be safe.
Formula 1 personnel had to return a negative test before travelling to Austria and have had to take a test every five days while present at the venue.
Formula 1 teams are also operating in bubbles, away from other organisations, while within those squads separate groups have been set up where possible.
Out of over 8,000 tests carried out on-location so far no positive tests have been returned.
Formula 1 personnel will head across the border to Hungary on Monday for the next event, which will take place at the Hungaroring, located on the outskirts of Budapest.
It is understood that UK-based personnel face substantial fines if they are caught outside of the circuit or their hotel due to restrictions imposed by Hungary’s government.
Commenting on the situation to get to this stage, Brawn said: “I think when we had the shock of Melbourne, we came back and we kind of had to recover from that but then started to think about what could we do to start racing again.
“I think motor racing is very good at logistics, very good at organising… Plan A, Plan B, Plan C is our bread and butter, that’s what we do all the time.
“With the FIA, Formula 1, promotors, with the teams, we started regular meetings to work out a plan and how we could go racing.
“The concept of the biosphere and the big bubble… that means we will get a positive at some stage but we hope then we can control it and minimise the risk.
“My wife was quite concerned about me coming here and I said this should be the safest place for me to ever be, and that was the objective.
“Touch wood we’ve been ok so far but we can’t get complacent.”
Formula 1 will head to Britain after Hungary for back-to-back events at Silverstone, and has also confirmed further grands prix in Spain, Belgium, Italy and Russia.
“Everyone’s keen to get racing as long as we offer a safe environment to do it,” said Brawn.
“We need to ensure that Formula 1, being an international sport moving around the world, we don’t become a sport that takes Covid-19 into a country.
“We’ve got to be someone who countries can totally rely on being a safe activity to have.”
