The F1 season begins at last! The first race will be run in Spielberg, Austria on Sunday, July 5th.
Traditionally, the most photographed guests in the depots have been the girlfriends and wives of the drivers, but due to the corona pandemic, efforts have been made to prune all the extra people from the races.
This is likely to mean that spouses will not be able to stress their men’s driving performance on the spot in the usual way.
Of course, encouragement and support can, of course, be given at a distance.
IS introduces the spouses of F1 drivers. Both students and top athletes can be found among them.
