Formula One and the FIA announced on Monday that two people have tested positive for the novel Covid-19 during the 2021 French Grand Prix race weekend.

The FIA and Formula One have made tremendous effort since the sport returned to action at last year’s season-opening Austrian Grand Prix. Both the governing body and the Commercial Rights’ Holder have delivered great efforts to ensure the action can continue in a safe manner for the teams, drivers, travelling staff and the people working on the hosting venues.

Since the start of the 2020 season, the FIA and Formula 1 have been providing aggregated information from each Grand Prix for the purposes of competition integrity and transparency.

The sport confirmed on Monday that „at the 2021 FIA Formula 1 French Grand Prix, between Monday 14th June and Sunday 20th June, 4,994 tests for COVID-19 were performed on drivers, teams and personnel. Of these, 2 people tested positive," read the statement.
