MotoGP, Covid-19, IRTA letter, Valentino Rossi

Published

on

The International Race Teams’ Association (IRTA) has vented its frustrations at several riders, issuing an open letter to the MotoGP paddock scolding them for breaking the COVID-19 bubble.

Strict COVID-19 protocols have been in place throughout this season, with paddock numbers reduced and regular testing taking place.

Riders and paddock members have also been under strict instruction to remain within the circuit/hotel bubble when back-to-back races take place at the same circuit, with travel outside the bubble only allowed for “important business reasons”.

F1 news 2020, Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton replacement, George Russell, Sakhir Grand Prix, Bahrain GP

Published

Williams driver George Russell will step into Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes this weekend in Bahrain after being chosen to replace the COVID-stricken seven time world champion.

Fresh from winning at the same track last weekend, Hamilton tested positive for the virus on Tuesday (AEDT) causing him to miss the Sakhir Grand Prix this weekend.

When this happened at Force India this season with Sergio Perez, former Renault driver Nico Hulkenberg was drafted in to replace him for two races.

However, Mercedes has instead opted for Russell, who has had a long-standing association with the team having joined the junior programme in 2017.

F1 news 2020, Mick Schumacher, Michael update, Haas, driven line up, Sakhir Grand Prix, Bahrain, latest

Published

Michael Schumacher’s son, Mick, will race in Formula 1 next season after Haas announced him as part of their new-look driver line-up for 2021.

Schumacher, who is currently leading the F2 championship, has joined Haas on a multi-year deal to join Nikita Mazepin, whose own promotion was announced yesterday.

The 21-year-old is part of Ferrari’s young driver scheme and given Haas’ close ties with the F1 giant, the move had been mooted for a while.

Schumacher will drive the car first during Practice 1 at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix next weekend before participating in the post-season tests at the same circuit the following week.
