Absent Marko: "We have a green light for Spanish GP"

Despite the rising corona infections in Catalonia, the Grand Prix of Spain will take place as planned. Helmut Marko confirms to F1-Insider.com that the race continues as scheduled.

A number of countries have advised against going to Barcelona, where the Spanish GP circuit is nearby, and a handful of countries even have a quarantine obligation for people coming back from that region. Nevertheless, the Formula 1 race can continue in Spain, Marko confirms.

A fourteen-day quarantine would put Formula 1 on hold, he thinks. "Despite the increase in corona cases in Spain, we've been given the green light," Marko confirms. "The hotels have already told us what to take into account. The event can continue because we've been living in our own bubble all the time". 

Marko himself will miss a Grand Prix: that of the Seventieth Anniversary of Formula 1. He will be in Graz on business and will travel to the south of Europe a week before the Spanish GP starts. (Photo: Red Bull Content Pool / Getty Images)
