  • Vandoorne flying to Bahrain, but unsure about Mercedes' plans

Lewis Hamilton has returned two positive tests for Covid-19 and will be unable to compete in this weekend's Sakhir Grand Prix in Bahrain.

Even in the absence of Romain Grosjean, Haas didn't choose Deletrez to race for the American team for the Sakhir GP and went for Pietro Fittipaldi, who is going to make his debut in Formula 1. Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel share that mark with 13 wins - Schumacher from 18 races in 2004 and Vettel from 19 in 2013.

Hamilton, last weekend, had won the crash-marred Bahrain Grand Prix where Romain Grosjean escaped with only minor burns after his vehicle exploded into a fireball.

"I'm devastated that I won't be racing this weekend", he said on Instagram. Apart from mild symptoms, he is otherwise fit and well, and the entire team sends him its very best wishes for a swift recovery.

Mercedes have already won the constructors' title for an unprecedented seventh year in a row.

It means he will have to wait to equal the record number of wins in a season, which now stands at 13.

"The FIA, Formula 1 and Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team can today confirm that during mandatory pre-race PCR testing for the Sakhir Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton has tested positive for Covid-19", the statement read.

Mercedes has said that they will announce their replacement driver for this weekend's race in "due course".

Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff said in October that every precaution was being taken to shield Hamilton and team mate Valtteri Bottas from the pandemic, with internal debriefs and engineering meetings also taking place via video call.

Hamilton has stayed in his motorhome at most circuits, with races confined to Europe before the final Middle Eastern triple-header, and returning to Monaco afterwards where physio Angela Cullen forms part of his protective "bubble".

Hamilton is the third F1 driver to test positive for COVID-19 this season, following Sergio Perez at Silverstone and Lance Stroll in Germany.

Formula One embarked on a shortened 17-race season in July after a positive test for a McLaren employee forced the cancellation of the season-opening Australian Grand Prix in March. Mercedes said he returned a negative result on each occasion.
