Bad news from the meeting of the team took place via conference call yesterday. The decision on the run or not at Silverstone was blocked by the English law that required all citizens who fall within the United Kingdom a quarantine period of two weeks. In such a context it is unthinkable to go to Silverstone to compete in the two races originally planned in the draft of the provisional calendar. In this perspective, gaining altitude, and the alternative Hockenheim, as he had already supposed, but even here there are doubts, very strong. Because if it is true that you miss Silverstone, it is also true that the personnel of the team is English as well as those of the TV production.

The way Red Bull would have thought to transfer to the Faenza Alpha Tauri part of their staff in order to circumvent the problems of quarantine imposed by the british government. Meanwhile, Austin arrives bad news, since the local government has in fact stalled all of the events with the public and within the period of limitations would also be the GP of f, 1 in Texas.
For the validity of the world championship in just 8 top-notch races the FIA, while the contracts with the TV include a minimum of 15 races otherwise triggered repayment of the fees paid by the television. But with the current scenarios, making predictions is quite difficult, so we focus on the 5 July, the GP of Austria, the question of local government that, at the moment still has closed borders with Italy except for documented problems of work, subject to the usual quarantine…
