Melbourne GP boss says F1 drivers must vaccinate

Every Formula 1 driver and team member will be “compliant” with border rules when they enter Australia for the first time since 2020 this April. That is the insistence of Melbourne race boss Andrew Westacott, who was asked if the city’s farcical Novak Djokovic situation could be repeated as Albert Park finally rejoins the F1 calendar. Westacott admits the situation reflects badly on Melbourne’s claim to be a welcoming sports capital of the world, with world number 1 tennis player Djokovic initially granted a medical exemption to enter Australia. “It’s a mandatory requirement for the sport and the travelling contingent to be compliant at the points of entry, and they will be compliant at the point of entry in Australia and Melbourne,” he insisted.
