Two countries must green-light Hamilton’s return

Whether Lewis Hamilton can return to his Mercedes cockpit for the 2020 finale this weekend is up to health officials in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi. Hamilton, 35, remains in isolation in Bahrain, but team boss Toto Wolff said he is feeling “a bit better” now and will soon undergo a new covid-19 test. “And if the test in Abu Dhabi is positive then George is in the car,” Wolff added. However, F1 race director Masi said the health authorities in Bahrain and also Abu Dhabi would have to green-light Hamilton’s recovery as well. “It’s very much a decision for the Bahraini health authorities to determine if Lewis is fit and complies with their regulations, and then for the Abu Dhabi authorities to determine their criteria,” he said.
