Daniel Ricciardo has tried positive for COVID-19, yet is set to finish his segregation on schedule for Formula 1’s 2022 season-opening race in Bahrain.
The McLaren driver felt unwell on Wednesday, the day preceding running at the Bahrain International Circuit started, and at first returned negative tests.
Anyway on Friday, after day two of the test was finished, McLaren uncovered the Australian has now returned a positive PCR test.
The group say he is proceeding to seclude as per neighborhood guidelines.
They added: “Under these guidelines, Daniel will be delivered on schedule for the following end of the week’s Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix. Daniel is as of now feeling improved, and we wish him well for a fast recuperation.”
Ricciardo said via online media: “Preferred for this present week over next… Lamentable to miss the test, yet I’m beginning to feel much improved. I’ll remain segregated and simply center around the following end of the week. Huge because of Lando and McLaren for the truly difficult work, I owe you a few brews (milk for Lando). Like the kindly words from everybody too.”
Norris will drive the entire day on Saturday – the last day of the test – having satisfied driving obligations on the initial two days, where McLaren battled with brake issues and oversaw a little more than 100 laps altogether.
