FORMULAR ONE

Sergio Perez will return to Racing Point this weekend after testing negative for coronavirus.


The 30 year-old Mexican will partake at this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix after missing two races at Silverstone.


Perez tested positive last month to COVID-19 after traveling to Mexico, one of the world’s coronavirus hit country, to visit his family.


According to Racing Point officials, Perez had tested negative for COVID-19 and Governing body FIA had confirmed, he could return to Formula 1 paddock.


Perez was the first Formula On driver to contract coronavirus, having finished in the top seven in the opening three races of the season before missing the British Grand Prix and 70th Anniversary Grand Prix.


Meanwhile, Sebastian Vettel will have a new chassis for the Spanish Grand Prix this weekend.


The German struggled in the last two races at Silverstone, due to a small fault later discovered in his car.


Ferrari said they noticed a problem with the frame of his chassis.
Vettel wrecked his race on Sunday with a first lap spin, when he went over the edge between the pavement.


He was under 0.4 seconds slower than his teammate Charles-Leclerc in qualifying, an improvement from the British Grand Prix.


Leclerc took a third and fourth place from the two races at Silverstone while Vettel was 10th in the British Grand Prix and 12th in the 70th Anniversary event.
