BREAKING: Hamilton Tests Positive For #COVID-19, Replaces With Nico Hulkenberg – #SakhirGrandPrix—Professional Mercedes driver, Lewis Hamilton will miss this weekend’s Sakhir Grand Prix after testing positive for COVID-19, Formula One’s governing body the FIA have confirmed.
The Genius Media reports that he has been replaced with Nico Hulkenberg
“Lewis was tested three times last week and returned a negative result each time, the last of which was on Sunday afternoon at the Bahrain International Circuit as part of the standard race weekend testing programme.
“However, he woke up on Monday morning with mild symptoms and was informed at the same time that a contact prior to arrival in Bahrain had subsequently tested positive. Lewis therefore took a further test and returned a positive result. This has since been confirmed by a retest,”
