The former pilot Helmut Marko, advisor of Red Bull, has ensured that the Dutch pilot Max Verstappen (Red Bull) is "terrified" for the idea of being able to contract the coronavirus, and considers that it would be "better" that "Spread" already, knowing that he is not a patient in a risk group, to leave his fear behind.
“He told me on the phone that he was terrified of being infected. It would be better if he got infected now, because at 22 he is not in the risk group ", explained in statements to the Austrian media Kronen Zeitung.
Marko is undergoing quarantine at his home in Graz. "Besides working in the office, I respond to my frustration with forestry and with a chainsaw."He said. “Austria has very good medical care. I am extremely careful not to get hurt and have to go to the hospital. That is the most dangerous place right now. "He said.
“In the supermarket, people fight for the products or stay close at the checkout. But if there are three people outside together, a security guard comes and asks what is going on. It's all very crazy ", he said.
Finally, Marko acknowledged that he thinks a lot about his late friend Niki Lauda these days. “It would be a risk patient. I always have Niki in the back of my mind and I try to live healthy and exercise more. "He said.
