FIA tells Racing Point to follow covid protocols

F1’s governing body has tightened covid protocols and warned Racing Point amid the unfolding saga involving Lance Stroll’s virus infection. Team boss Otmar Szafnauer defended his actions that led to Stroll admitting this week he had coronavirus after Racing Point said he sat out the Nurburgring with a stomach ache. “Lance called his doctor,” Szafnauer said at the Portimao circuit. There are also inconsistencies with Stroll’s story, as he said on Thursday that he now feels “great” and only ever had “mild symptoms” – even though he was sidelined in Germany with what the team called a severe stomach upset.
