coronavirus rules: What happens when Lewis Hamilton can’t race after Covid positive? Who is his Mercedes replacement?

FORMULA ONE was the first international sport to come back after the coronavirus pandemic and in order to get approval from the respective governments of the countries it went to, it needed to have a strict Covid Code of Conduct. Lewis Hamilton is the third driver this season to test positive for coronavirus after Sergio Perez and Lance Stroll. The results are also sent to the FIA and, should there be a positive test, that person and their team would be notified. The world champion felt “mild symptoms” and it was the pre-event test that delivered a positive result. It was the same for Perez, who tested positive ahead of the British GP and was forced to miss out. This is standard procedure where those in the bubble remain in isolation following the results of further testing.
