FE have conducted 1,423 tests in Berlin ahead of their season showdown – with Agag and Gill being the only two confirmed positive tests so far.

The all-electric series have cut down their personnel on site from roughly 5000 people down to just 1000 to fulfill legal requirements in Germany. 

Each team is only allowed to have 21 members at the track, which includes the two drivers and team principal. All staff members will be tested at the track every five to seven days.

FE have five more races to come with the season coming to a close on August 13.
