(Part of) team personnel in. Fans (probably) out. That's the essence of the "pretty draconian" measures that Red Bull could put in place in order to make happen the Austrian Grand Prix at Spielberg in early July.

Red Bull are really committed to getting the championship off the ground. They have put in huge effort to get the race under way in Austria. It's a circuit that's owned by Red Bull, so it's obviously within their control, but they're working with the local authorities and the government

clarified Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner at Autosport podcast. And, if the attempt would succeed, it could be a good base for other organizers to implement from:

Of course the screening and testing and the restrictions that are going to be in place are going to be pretty draconian, but if it allows the sport to start up again, I think it will be a blueprint for other circuits to follow

Jos Verstappen talks all things 2020 in an interview with Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.

For sure the Briton reckons that it won't be anything but resembling a normal Grand Prix:

I think when we do get going again, it's going to be like creating a tight group of people, probably less than 80 people within a team, and they're all going to have to stay in the same hotel, they're all going to have to travel together, and they are not going to be able to interface with other teams. I think that there are going to be procedures in place that are designed to protect most of the competitors, and also take the necessary precautions for the hosts of these races as well, so it's not going to be a standard Grand Prix format by any shape or form

Finally, he loudly pointed out the ultimate claim of his company: getting back racing is vital.

We're a race team, and we need a championship to race in. It's unimaginable not to go racing this year, and I think it would be enormously unlikely for there not to be an event take place, or a world championship to take place
