Formula One : Perez positive for coronavirus

Formula One :

Sergio Perez is stationary. Positive for covid-19, the Racing Point driver will not participate in the British Grand Prix this weekend.

After an inconclusive test undergone during the day, the verdict fell in the evening this Thursday for Sergio Perez. The doubt is now raised, the Mexican pilot is indeed positive for the coronavirus. Bad news synonymous with solitary confinement, and therefore forfeit the weekend Grand Prix at Silverstone. And beyond.

As F1 prepares to do three races over the next three weeks, it’s a safe bet that Lance Stroll’s teammate at Racing Point will not be back on the tracks before the Belgian Grand Prix on August 30. In the best case. By then, the second pink seat should be occupied by a Mercedes driver, under an agreement between Racing Point and the world champion team.

Gutierrez or Vandoorne for substitute

The Belgian Stoffel Vandoorne or the Mexican Esteban Gutierrez will have this honor from Friday for the first British free practice sessions. Sergio Perez, he will have to take his illness patiently, hoping that he does not develop a severe form of the disease. After three races, all finished in points, the person concerned was sixth in the championship, up to fifth place held by Red Bull driver Alexander Albon.
