Full story Coronavirus in F1: Red Bull's Helmut Marko told team's drivers to become infected

Red Bull motorsport boss Helmut Marko said he advised his drivers to become infected with coronavirus while the season is in hiatus.

The 76-year-old said he had the idea to bring his Formula 1 drivers and juniors together in a camp, which "would be the ideal time for the infection to come".

"They are all strong young men in good health. That way they would be prepared whenever the action starts," he said.

The rest of Red Bull management were against the idea, which was abandoned.

Don't quite know how to comment on such stupidity.

Maybe he should be the first to test his suggestion.

Has anyone told him the mortality rate of infected COVID-19 patients is like 3-to-1 male-to-female ratio (Chinese patient data)? And at 76, his odds of survival are less than 50% if he contracted the virus (assuming he is not immuno-compromised). Yes, he could/should volunteer as F1 team's COVID-19 patient #1...

To call it stupid is being kind/generous to the gentleman, Len....
