Within that interview, he revealed he has had a conversation with Verstappen, who is concerned about catching the virus. Marko’s solution is quite something.
“He [Max] told me on the phone he was terrified of getting the virus,” Marko said.
“The best thing would be if he got infected now, he’s 22, it’s not at a high risk and he would be in a better place for the run to the title later being already immune.”
As a perfectly fit and healthy 22-year-old, Verstappen would be able to fight the virus and perhaps even test positive without displaying any symptoms whatsoever.
There is also, of course, a risk of spreading the virus to others who may have a harder time battling the virus due to underlying health conditions.
May be it’s time for Helmut to stop being interviewed for a while.
