F1 guards against Djokovic-style fiasco by imposing mandatory vaccines for all

The policy drawn up by the sport’s governing body will be written into the regulations for the new season and will apply to all drivers, teams, media and hospitality guests. The sport hopes the rule will avoid a repeat of the Novak Djokovic fiasco that overshadowed the buildup to this month’s Australian Open. All of the grid’s current drivers are understood to be vaccinated. An F1 spokesperson said: “Formula One management will require all travelling personnel to be fully vaccinated and will not request exemptions.”. F1 became the first global sport to restart following the pandemic, completing a 17-race calendar in 2020 and 22 grands prix last year.
