Anyone entering the paddock at the Red Bull Ring must have a clean bill of health and is being tested every five days by private medical teams.
Sunday’s race, the first of two on successive weekends at the scenic Austrian circuit, is being staged without spectators and in tight health and safety conditions.
Formula One said in a statement that 4,032 tests of drivers, teams and personnel were conducted between June 26 and July 2. It said aggregated information would be made public every seven days.
