Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff on whether there will be any hitches in the 2021 season due to COVID-19 protocols.

With the second Formula 1 season under pandemic rules ready to begin in a little over a month, and with many countries still in lockdown, Toto Wolff was asked by Speedweek if he thought there would be any problems for teams in 2021.

“In the end, it’s all looking into the crystal ball,” said the Austrian.

“But I think that thanks to the vaccination coverage, the situation will ease in most European countries. That’s why I think the situation in two or three months will be much better than last year.

“It is not yet certain that all races can take place in the planned order, Portugal and Brazil are currently on the red list. But the further we are in the season, the more I expect the situation to ease.

“The British teams still have the exception for top-class sport with a strict protocol that we have to comply with, which we also do. And the whole Formula 1 entourage is tested every three days anyway.

And will Wolff himself get vaccinated?

“For the time being, I can’t get my turn because I was already infected with corona and have to queue up behind so many who need it more,” concluded Mercedes’ team boss.
