Kimi Raikkonen: Alfa Romeo driver out of Dutch GP after testing positive for Covid-19

Alfa Romeo driver Kimi Raikkonen has tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss this weekend’s Dutch Grand Prix. Alfa Romeo said: “Kimi is displaying no symptoms and is in good spirits. Kubica last raced at the end of the 2019 season for Williams but has tested for Alfa a number of times this year. F1’s governing body the FIA has strict Covid protocols which require the immediate isolation and then retesting of anyone designated a close contact of someone who has a positive test result. Alfa said that “all close contacts have been sorted according to the FIA protocols”. F1 applies the national guidelines of the country in which the individual race is being held and in the Netherlands the requirement is only to have to isolate as a close contact if a person is not vaccinated.
