How many other have tested positive?

Or is anyone they contact trace back to Perez forced to quarantine as well?

Hope this doesnt get bad but admittedly very curious about the process.

From ...Formula1.com


"With assistance of the local organiser of the British Grand Prix, local health authorities and the FIA COVID-19 delegate, a full track and trace initiative has been undertaken and all close contacts have been quarantined.

A team spokesperson earlier confirmed a small group of team members that were in contact with Perez were self-isolating as a precaution and being re-tested, as is standard procedure.

Hulk safe pair of hands, most recent experience of nane drivers not in it this year.

Or maybe Alonso? (Pulls pin and lobs..)

Confirmed here that Perez will miss both the Silverstone Grands Prix.

Article also suggesting that the Hulk is RP's preferred replacement driver.

Must say I'd love to see him get on a podium - but even though the RP is clearly good, I'm not sure that it'll be good enough at Silverstone with only 1 podium spot up for grabs if both Mercs do their usual dance.

Bottas moves his bubble to Monaco.
Leclerc leaves his bubble.

Crossing my fingers for the Hulk here.

I obviously wish him a full recovery first of all but I hope Perez didn't catch the virus through negligence. We need responsibility to keep the show on the road and he himself does not need to jeopardise his chance of the Racing Point seat next year (though admittedly that is likely gone already).

Tough luck on Checo, let's hope it's nothing serious. The right precaution is being taken here. And yes, as was mentioned, you do wonder if him feeling dizzy at the Hungarian GP had anything to do with it

The silver lining is we get to see the Hulk back. Once he gets up to speed I expect to see him qualify near the front. Could even finally get his first podium with a bit of luck and what a story that would be

Maybe he has tested positive for Stroll syndrome ? A debilitating mental trauma caused by the realisation that the boss's lad is not the hopeless slow coach some so called fans wanted him to be ...

More likely to be connected with his trip back home to Mexico......
