Nico Hulkenberg on standby for F1 team Racing Point at Portuguese GP after Lance Stroll’s coronavirus drama

NICO HULKENBERG is on standby for Racing Point should either of its drivers fail another Covid-19 test at this weekend’s Portuguese GP. The German replaced Lance Stroll, who missed the Eifel GP after complaining of feeling unwell before flying home to Switzerland, where he tested positive. Szafnauer has defended his team’s decision not to test his driver, insisting he was told that his symptoms were not Covid related. He said: “He had the same symptoms he had in Russia where we tested him twice thereafter and he came back twice negative. “So he’s got a stomach upset after Russia, we tested him a couple of times, Lance went and saw the doctor in Switzerland so called him.”. “And then when Lance landed and tested, Lawrence tested at the same time again.
