Tents instead of Motorhomes: the formula 1 paddock looks like 2020 is quite different

It is already known that the formula 1 race in Europe of the season 2020 on their huge Motorhomes will pass. Background: the construction of The facilities takes a long time and requires a lot of staff. This is not consistent with the severe Corona conditions, which were adopted before the Start of the season next weekend.

Karl Fanson, which is in the Mercedes Team for logistics, has revealed in a Video of the silver arrows now have new Details. "It will not be the same Set-up as with a standard European race, because we will have no Motorhomes," he confirms once more and reveals that there will also be a new arrangement of the structure in the paddock.

So the large Trucks of the Teams, which are usually close to the garages to get a little further away from the boxes to a new place. "We will also bring our own tents [ ... ]," says Fanson. This will then be constructed there, where else actually, the big Trucks would be.

Background: "as a result, we will have in the Garage for more room to Work in," says Fanson. To make it easier, the required minimum distance to comply with the stand. In addition, the Teams have to change their procedures in the case of deliveries of new Parts. And, the delivery of external things, such as Fuel and tyres is change the pads.

"Normally, our gasoline would be delivered [directly] to the Garage, and we would send people to get at Pirelli tyres," tells Fanson and declared: "Now there will be a Unloading and a pick up point for the petrol, and the tyres are taken to an unloading point."

This System allows you to pick up the tire and later to Pirelli to return, without a direct contact between the employees of Pirelli and the Teams. This also means: There must be only one group of people to the said point - either Pirelli or the Teams.

One of the core points in the concept of Hygiene of the formula 1 is that there must be no direct contact between Mitarteitern of the different Teams. This is to prevent the Virus can skip to a different group, if it's supposed to - as in Australia - once again to the corona case.
