But in the past few days there has also been a rapid increase in the number of corona cases in Germany, which means that the situation is constantly changing. The ITR had originally planned to at least broadcast the press conferences via livestream, but that too had to be canceled.

Cancellation of the test not excluded

The background: This would also have required personnel whose health those responsible did not want to jeopardize. Therefore, the ITR test this year will be purely sporty test drives.

No one can say at the moment whether these will take place 100 percent. "The DTM umbrella organization ITR is closely monitoring the situation in connection with the spread of COVID-19 and the corona virus," an ITR spokesman replied when asked by 'Motorsport-Total.com' whether a cancellation would be conceivable.

Can the test be carried out?

From the current perspective, it is difficult to say how many people will actually be in the paddock in Hockenheim. In normal test operation, it would be around 200 to 300 people.

This is quite relevant, because after the first corona death in Baden-Württemberg - the fourth in Germany - some cities take drastic measures: Heilbronn and Reutlingen have banned events with more than 200 people. There are currently 18 suspected cases in the Rhein-Neckar district, in which the Hockenheimring is also located. In total, there are 335 in Baden-Württemberg.

On Wednesday, the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Social Affairs decreed "that no events with more than 1,000 visitors may be held in the state". For events with fewer than 1,000 participants, an individual assessment of the risks and whether they can be countered with infection-hygiene measures is still necessary.
