Curfew does not apply to F1 teams in Sao Paulo after cargo late in the run-up to Brazilian GP


The curfew in force in São Paulo to combat the coronavirus will not apply next night to Formula 1 teams that received their equipment late. Due to the weather conditions in Mexico last weekend, some cargo planes, including engines and other F1 equipment, were unable to leave in time after the race.

As a result, some racing stables, including Haas, had to be patient in their preparations for the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday, which also includes a sprint race on Saturday.

“The plane has landed, but I don’t think all our equipment has been delivered to the track yet,” Haas team principal Günther Steiner said. “That means that our technicians will probably have to work until after midnight to get everything in order on time. It’s going to be a little late for everyone on our team anyway. Not only do we miss our engines, but also our tools and you can’t get started without tools.”

In addition to the Haas team, other racing stables have also been affected by the delays in freight traffic from Mexico. It is not yet known which teams are involved.

With four GPs to go, Dutchman Max Verstappen (Red Bull) has a 19-point lead over title holder Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) of Great Britain.
