Members of F1 paddock admitted to hospital

The Swiss newspaper Blick is today reporting that several members of Formula One’s paddock have being admitted to a hospital in Austin.

Blick claims that there are three members of the media from Portugal, Denmark and England and “some members” of the Red Bull are reportedly in hospital.

And it is believed that the Briton involved is the highly-regarded photographer Keith Sutton while the other two are Journalists, Denmark’s Peter Nygaard and Portugal’s Luis Vasconcelos.

The report claimed that they have been admitted after contracting infectious diseases after being bitten by mosquitoes last month in India. It was reported during the Indian Grand Prix, which was held 20 days ago, that huge swarms of mosquitoes in the area around the track could be carrying the infectious and potentially life-threatening dengue fever.

Blick also mentioned the possibility of Malaria.
