The two positive cases were detected as part of F1’s routine mandatory testing of all personnel in the paddock. This is not the first time the team has been plagued by COVID-19, with drivers Sergio Perez and Lance Stroll missing races last season due to COVID infections. Four other team members and team owner Lawrence Stroll also tested positive for the virus last season.
According to RaceFans, the two employees in question have been isolated and will take no further part in this weekend’s event. A spokesperson also noted that the team has taken all necessary precautions and will still be a part of the Bahrain Grand Prix.
