RaceFans Round-up: Verstappen “avoided festivities” to steer clear of Covid

In the round-up: Max Verstappen describes the steps he took to avoid contracting Covid-19 during the off-season.

Verstappen “avoided festivities” to steer clear of Covid

Verstappen, whose new team mate Sergio Perez missed two races last year after contracting Covid-19, was asked whether he was convinced he would avoid catching it before the season begins, and whether he had taken special precautions against the pandemic.

“If you get it, you get it,” said Verstappen. “There is not much you can do about it.”

“I didn’t go to Dubai,” he added. “I avoided festivities and ensured I mixed with the same group of people.

“But it can happen to the most cautious people.”

Perez is one of six Formula 1 drivers who have tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 12 months. Two – Lewis Hamilton and Lance Stroll – also missed races during the season. The others – Charles Leclerc, Lando Norris and Pierre Gasly – contracted the virus during the off-season. All have since recovered.
