A strange situation developed around Lance Stroll, the driver of Racing Point, at the Formula 1 Eifel Grand Prix. The Canadian rider first felt unwell, left his team on Saturday, and then produced a positive coronavirus test on Sunday. The team tried to clarify for themselves exactly what and how it happened, the suspicion arose that they did not want Stroll to miss another race after the Nürburgring race.
McLaren CEO Zak Brown is also strengthening the camp of skeptics, voicing this at the venue of the Portuguese Grand Prix. The U.S. expert doesn’t understand why the pilot who complained of malaise hasn’t been tested on the race track anymore. “I would test everyone daily who doesn’t feel good. I don’t know who your doctor was. Dr. Mallya? Dr. Seuss? Maybe Dr. Dre? ” Brown stabbed, hinting that Stroll said his own doctor might have been misled by his symptoms.
“I’ve heard that Racing Point claims to test more than anyone. I don’t know, as they support this. What I do know is that when we had a positive case in Australia, we communicated it very quickly to everyone, and Mercedes did exactly that in the cases that happened to them, ”added the McLaren leader.
The leaders of the two teams did not speak together for the first time this year. They also had a fun buzz when Racing Point’s copy scandal erupted when Otmar Szafnauer’s speech was turned upside down. The Racing Point team boss at the time said of Brown that he didn’t even understand Formula One, he knew more about racing old cars than he did about F1 rules. However, the other side saved nicely when he said that, in fact, the opponent is also racing an old car, alluding to copying the 2019 Mercedes.
