The team said the 57-year-old was tested in the UK on Wednesday after displaying “minor symptoms”. He will isolate for the statutory 10-day period and support the team’s operations at Istanbul Park remotely. Team manager Dave Redding and chief vehicle design engineer Adam Carter will assume responsibilities in Turkey. Williams said that Roberts had not been in close contact with any other members of the race team and operations in Turkey would otherwise be unaffected.
