Nico Hulkenberg will take the place of Sergio Perez at Racing Point again at this weekend’s 70th Anniversary GP at Silverstone, after the Mexican returned another positive COVID-19 test.

Perez had been self-isolating for seven days – completing a period of quarantine set by Public Health England – after a positive result ruled him out of the British GP, but needed to test negative for coronavirus on Thursday to be able to compete in the second Silverstone race.

But he tested positive again, meaning Hulkenberg keeps his spot on the Formula 1 grid.
