Who thinks the 2 races in Austria will actually happen in July? It's possible, but it also seems too soon to me.

Glad to hear things are going well with Silverstone and Spa.
Yesterday gastronomy (restaurants, bars etc.) reopened in Austria. If in the next couple of weeks the number of new infections don't go up significantly, I'm pretty sure that the races will take place.

However, if the UK is demanding a two week quarantine for any returning ‘tourists’, how many teams can function afterwards if the race goes ahead?

So what's new in this video? Those numbers have been known for months now. Don't think the UK government needed to confirm it.

Travel from venue to venue and isolate on arrival. It must be possible to get residence on site, a modern caravan is hardly roughing it. It may even be possible to accommodate partners/family sometimes.

Homolgated FIA approved isoltion cells. All drivers and team members must use these at least two weeks before any event. The cells are one per person and are chambered like a pea pod or the womb of a sow (take your pick) so that multiple cells are umbilicially connected to a shipping container.

Oxygen, water, food, wastes are transported in the umblicials. While blood quality, stool, breath and other phsyiological parameters and vital signs are monitored. The cell passenger may opt to go into semi-cryo sleep/suspended animation/induced coma to speed the flow of time before the race.

If any Corona Virus is detected the cell raises an alarm and the cell is tranported to a Hospital hub for treatment.

If all vital signs and serology is clear the cell is green lighted and the isolation container passport is stamped for sbipment to tbe race. Race briefings are viwed in the "Augmented reality lenses" while in the cell. otherwise Briefings are uplinked directly to the brain for those passengers in Cryo-sleep. For muscle memory conditioning, electronic impulses are sent to the muscles to violently trigger them with car controls and G-force data streams as if the driver were doing two race distances.

The cell passengers are never exposed physically to anyone else before, during or after the race. He must wear is aspirated full body cell membrane aka "X-Placenta". The slimy gleam around the drivers will look a little off-putting at first - goes without saying he must avoid sharp objects! - but these measures are all but necessary to maintain total isolation through the races this season.

PS.. This is a creative view of how Covid-19 could affect things.. If it goes on longer than we like.

Well, it looks like we can write-off Silverstone with the announcement that they are not exempting F1 from the UK quarantine ban.

But of course, we are (maybe) going to get TWO races on the dreaded A1 Ring, or whatever they call it now.

UK Govt has never supported F1, unlike so many others, so I wouldn't be surprised to see no exemptions.

UK Govt loves to kick successful UK industry and then moan about how terrible it is that the UK has no "X industry" anymore. :roll: :evil:

I've learned since living in the UK that the health and safety here, while legendary, has not been exaggerated at all. It's absolutely choking idiocy at every corner.

I wouldn't be surprised if after handshaking and Herd immunity-ing their way into this foreseeable covid management failure situation here in the UK that they turn the H&S dial up even more and nothing is allowed.

Nice find Hollus. The interesting thing though is the word zinc is not mentioned 1 time in that entire article.

... a video which was posted here and was, explicitly, medical advice, was removed (see explanation a few posts below).

Now i am no doctor but according to this and some of this doctors other videos on Covid 19 which he has a few posted, Hydroxychloroquine is a zinc ionophore which means it pushes zinc into the cell. So you need to take zinc with it to work effectively. And the main function is the zinc in the cell stops the virus reproducing so if taken early is very effective. So its main function is not like your typical drug that kills a virus but to stop the replication of the virus.

Most studies I am reading though do not use Zinc at all with hydroxychloroquine which is quite puzzling.
