Pierre Gasli of Alphatouri tested positive for Corona. With this, Gasli has now become the sixth Formula 1 driver to test positive for the Kovid-19. Previously, Sergio Perez, Lance Stroke, Lewis Hamilton, Lando Norris and Ferrari’s Charles Lechler tested positive for coronavirus.
Gasli took to Twitter and wrote, “I want to tell you that I tested positive for COVID-19. I have told everyone that I have been in contact during these last days.” He continued, “I am currently self-segregating the protocol set by the local health authorities and I am feeling fine, and will continue to follow my training plan from home as long as I am isolated.” ”
Due to ongoing travel restrictions in place, the 2021 Chinese Grand Prix will not be on its planned date, with Imola returning to that slot on the F1 calendar. In a release, F1 said, “Discussions are ongoing with promoters and officials in China, with the ability to reschedule the race later in the season if possible.” Following the Bahrain Grand Prix on 28 March, Imola will hold the next race on 18 April while the last race of the season advances to Abu Dhabi on 12 December. Australia will host the third last race of the 2021 season on 21 November.
