Corona terror in Formula 1: McLaren will not participate in the season opener of Formula 1 in Australia. This was announced by the crew around Zak Brown and Andreas Seidl to those responsible for Formula 1 and FIA. The reason for this is a team member who tested positive for the Corona virus.

After the cancellation of the traditional team, there are currently very big question marks over the Monumental Prix in Melbourne, which is the season 2020 should usher in. In addition to the McLaren employee, four other members of the F1 paddock also showed symptoms of the coronavirus. But the three Haas employees were tested negatively.


Should the Australian GP take place as planned, there will be a maximum of 18 vehicles are on the starting grid. The orange McLaren racers – controlled by Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris – will then probably only be seen at the Bahrain GP.
