Racing Point’s Lance Stroll has revealed that he tested positive for Covid-19 following the Eifel Grand Prix.
The Canadian, who missed the race at the Nurburgring and was replaced by Nico Hulkenberg from qualifying onwards, broke the news on Instagram.
He said he had self-isolated for 10 days and is now “feeling 100% and have since tested negative”.
Stroll added that he feels “in great shape” and “can’t wait to be back with the team and to race in Portugal.”
In Stroll’s absence, Hulkenberg finished P8 at the Nurburgring, helping Racing Point leapfrog McLaren into third in the constructors’ standings.
