Sergio Perez placed into self-isolation after inconclusive COVID-19 test just days before British GP
The Mexican driver took the required test but the results were inconclusive and he was immediately sent away from Silverstone.
Sergio Perez, who drives for the Racing Point team is now waiting for the new results to see if he will be able
to compete this weekend,
Should he fail the second test, Racing Point will be able to call on Mercedes’ reserve drivers, Stoffel Vandoorne
or Esteban Gutierrez.
However, Vandoorne has race duties with Mercedes in Formula E across the next couple of weeks,
meaning Gutierrez is likely to be the primary candidate if he is needed.
Vandoorne has not raced in Formula 1 since leaving McLaren at the end of 2018 while Gutierrez’s last start came with Haas in 2016.
