AUTO+ MEDICAL - ISSUE 20
August 19, 2020  
Welcome to the latest issue of AUTO+ Medical, featuring the latest news from the world of motor sport medicine.

 

As motor sport starts to return worldwide this edition focuses on how the FIA’s Return to Motor Sport Guidelines have enabled this to be possible, looking at the special arrangements and testing regime for those involved in Formula One and other championships.

To help with COVID-19 relief worldwide the FIA has worked with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, supplying National Sporting Authorities with vital personal protective equipment, which is illustrated in a global map.

The big interview features Pirelli Head of F1 and Car Racing Mario Isola, who talks about the safety considerations of the new 18-inch tyres that will debut in F1 in 2022. He also talks about his life on the front line as a part-time ambulance driver in Milan.

There is a look inside the brand new medical center at Zandvoort. We speak to the Chief Medical Officer about the facility, which was primarily built for F1’s return to the circuit.
 
In our Road Back feature, Formula 2 racer Jehan Darvala discusses his recovery after sustaining a knee injury while training towards the end of last season, which subsequently caused him to miss the Formula 3 Macau Grand Prix.

We also examine the importance of hydration in motor sport in our secondary feature by speaking to key doctors and physios, and the scientific article focuses on how crash dynamics in motor sport can differ to those experienced on the public road.  

 

 
With very best wishes,
 

Professor Gérard Saillant
President, FIA Medical Commission
