Maranello FactoryAccording to the British newspaper The Sun, a member of the technical staff at Ferrari’s Gestione Sportiva would have been taken to a hospital as he would have been diagnosed a ‘mild form’ of tuberculosis, a deadly infectious disease caused by mycobacteria which usually attacks the lungs. Despite that, Ferrari would have asked to all workers at the factory in Maranello to keep working regularly.

According to reports, 25 technicians employed for assembling Kimi Raikkonen‘s and Felipe Massa‘s cars would be currently undergoing blood tests to rule out any infection.

“We’re not happy. We think the lab should be shut down until we get an all-clear. It feels as if Ferrari are putting cars before people,” a British employee would have told the newspaper.
