Seven-time Formula 1 champion and Mercedes pilot Lewis Hamilton received a positive coronavirus test result. It was reported on Tuesday, December 1, on the official website of the International Automobile Federation (FIA).
“The FIA, Formula 1 and the Mercedes team can today confirm that Lewis Hamilton passed the COVID-19 positive test during the mandatory pre-competitive PCR test for the Sakhir Grand Prix,” it said.
The racer was isolated and the circle of people with whom he came into contact was determined.
It is indicated that Hamilton’s disease will not affect the events over the coming weekend.
In late July, the pilot of the team “Racing Point” Sergio Perez was infected with coronavirus. As a result, the Mexican missed the British Grand Prix.
