Williams confirmed that in recent weeks, a number of team members have been infected with the coronavirus.
“During the Grand Prix of Portugal and Emilia-Romagna, we had several cases where tests for Covid-19 gave a positive result,” the team said in a statement. – Although we will not disclose any information of a private nature, we can confirm that in all these cases we acted in accordance with the recommendations of the FIA and cooperated with the federation – we consider the safety of people a priority.
Following these guidelines, we also quarantined several of our racing crew members who had close contact with those identified as being infected.
In accordance with our internal regulations, several team members, who usually work at the base, will take over their duties at the upcoming Turkish Grand Prix. “
