Lewis Hamilton You will not miss the last round of the 2020 Formula 1 championship, after having successfully overcome the coronavirus infection.
The seven-time world champion, who missed the second race in Bahrain, has traveled from there, where he has been isolated for the last ten days, until Abu dhabi after giving negative on various PCR tests before leaving the country where he played his last race so far. Upon arrival in the emirate, he has also undergone a new PCR that it has returned negative, with which it has received the full OK both from the local authorities and from Formula 1 itself, which has strictly complied with its protocol.
As reported by Mercedes, Hamilton already tested negative on Wednesday, although times forced him to postpone his arrival at Yas Marina until this Thursday. He himself stated that he felt much better after several difficult days in which he did not feel “at all well”, although his symptoms were mild.
Consequently, this news implies that George Russell go back to Williams. The young British rider was the big star, with permission from Sergio Pérez, of the past Sakhir GP when he was close to victory until a clamorous Mercedes blunder and a subsequent puncture deprived him of glory.
Russell will try to help his team to score their first points of the year, something that he already achieved last Sunday thanks to his 8th place and his fastest lap. The last piece of the domino is Jack Aitken, substitute for Russell last weekend, who with his return to Williams will not shoot.
