Abu Dhabi Grand Prix: Nikita Mazepin tests positive for Covid

Haas driver Nikita Mazepin testing positive for Covid-19 will not have a “wider impact” on the title-deciding Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, says Formula 1. “Mazepin is experiencing mild symptoms and is now isolating in accordance with Covid-19 protocols,” said Formula 1. Mazepin was due to start the race – a title decider between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen – in 20th position. Haas will only have German driver Mick Schumacher on the grid in Mazepin’s absence. “The procedures set out by the FIA and Formula 1 will ensure no wider impact on the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix,” said the governing body.
