Sergio Perez and Carlos Sainz are the first Formula 1 drivers to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
The vaccination process has begun in Formula 1. Both Sergio Perez and Carlos Sainz have annouced earlier on Friday that they have already got the first shot of COVID-19 vaccine ahead of pre-season testing in Bahrain.
Earlier, Bahrain has offered Formula 1 to get every team and staff member vaccinated in the course of testing and Grand Prix, but F1 has rejected the offer. However, some teams, including Ferrari and Mercedes, have voluntarily decided to vaccinate.
