Formula 1 to make Covid-19 vaccines mandatory for all personnel this year

Formula 1 is to make Covid-19 vaccines mandatory for all personnel this year. It is not expected to have an impact on any of the drivers’ ability to compete as all are understood to be vaccinated. Double vaccination was a requirement of entry to the USA for last year’s US Grand Prix in Austin, Texas. The sport will also follow the vaccine and wider Covid policies of each national government of the countries it visits. The decision to mandate vaccines, first revealed in the Times newspaper,external-link could lead to a relaxation of Covid restrictions within F1, such as reduced testing and a relaxation of the ‘bubble’ system designed over the last two years to minimise the impact of Covid.
