Coronavirus: Team member of Formula 1 tyre supplier Pirelli tests positive

A member of tyre supplier Pirelli’s Formula 1 team has tested positive for coronavirus in Melbourne. It is the second positive test by an F1 team member, after a McLaren employee’s illness led to the cancellation of the season-opening Australian Grand Prix. Pirelli said the person is “following all the relevant procedures put in place by the health authorities”. Pirelli had “not had any contact with third parties that required anyone else to take special preventative measures”. Pirelli added it was “closely monitoring the situation in line with public health policies and company guidelines”.
