Ferrari plays it safe: 'We're working with two anti-corona bubbles'

Even the Ferrari team is prepared for everything: the Scuderia has split its eighty allowable staff into two halves. Sporting boss Laurent Mekies announces that the team will intervene at the slightest incident and also that they have reserve team members ready, if required.
'We have divided both sides of the garage into two zones, two anti-corona bubbles,' explains Mekies to Sky Italia. 'If someone displays symptoms, they will immediately be tested at the circuit. We are doing this to minimise the number of possible new infections. Then we will decide whether to continue or not.'
He indicates that working safely is the top priority. In addition, there may even be replacements in Maranello. If that doesn't work, then the race weekend will be over for Ferrari.
Reserve driver Giovinazzi is backed up by Kubica
Should one of the current drivers Sebastian Vettel or Charles Leclerc have to miss a race, there are several drivers available to substitute them. Antonio Giovinazzi will drive for Alfa Romeo but will then head to the Scuderia, and Robert Kubica will take over Giovanazzi's task instead of his DTM obligations.
