Lewis Hamilton says people from other sports, for example football, take COVID-19 measures less seriously than Formula 1.

Since 2020 Formula has had a lot of very strict measures in place to protect the people involved in the sport from contracting COVID-19.

All of the teams have to remain in their small “bubbles”, with little to no interactions with the people outside.

This is especially important for drivers who can lose a lot of points if they are forced to miss a race or two. Lewis Hamilton says it’s different in some other sports.

“I’ve seen footballers just recently, they didn’t care,” said the Briton.

“I read that they didn’t really put too much focus on it. And if they miss a game, it doesn’t make a huge difference. It’s a bit different here.

“We’re allowing fans to come in that aren’t tested and also now I think all the photographers are coming in.

“I know it’s opening it up more, but I anticipate they’ll need to make some changes soon because it’s a tough bubble to keep,” concluded Hamilton.
