SERGIO PEREZ TO RACE GRAND PRIX 70TH ANNIVERSARY IF HE TESTS NEGATIVE FOR COVID19

SERGIO PEREZ

Racing Point driver Sergio Perez could race in the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix at Silverstone this weekend if he tests negative for coronavirus.

The 30-year-old Mexican missed last weekend’s British Grand Prix after a positive test but avoided the now-required 10-day isolation period on a technicality.

A Racing Point statement said Public Health England, PHE had ruled he needed to isolate only for seven days.

This was the quarantine requirement when Perez first tested negative.

There had been controversy as to how long Perez would need to stay in isolation due to the changed guidance in the UK from seven to 10 days between his first and second tests.
