A robust system will be in place during the opening weekend and subsequent races, with regular testing for coronavirus taking place both prior to and during race weekends. Social distancing measures will be in place and limited team personnel permitted to travel to races, and each event will be closed to the public.
Earlier this week, Lando Norris took part in a private test with his old junior team Carlin, as he also sought to prepare ahead of the Austrian Grand Prix on July 5.
Norris has kept busy during the lockdown period, driving in plenty of online races and championships, though he was back in a real F3 car at Silverstone earlier in the week.
The McLaren driver raced with Carlin throughout his career before making it to Formula 1, competing with the team in British and European F3 and Formula 2 in 2018 ahead of his call-up to McLaren’s F1 team last year.
Carlos Sainz, Kevin Magnussen and Pierre Gasly have each been karting at some point during lockdown and George Russell has said he is also keen to test in old F1 machinery before taking to the track at the Red Bull Ring in July.
