McLaren employees quarantined after the Australian Grand Prix were quarantined were reportedly finally on their way home. Staff must arrive in the UK within the next 48 hours.
On Thursday, before the Grand Prix season opened, McLaren announced that an engineer had tested positive for the Corona virus. The Woking team went to the race immediately and no less than 16 people were immediately quarantined.
Employees can return home 12 days later. Team director Andreas Seidl was one of many employees who lived in Melbourne for several more days to support the crew during their isolation phase.
According to sources, infected team members have flown far away. Seven of the other employees completed a negative COVID-19 test after only one week in quarantine. The virus seems to have existed since the beginning at McLaren for now.
