Mexican Sergio Perez is self-isolating after returning an inconclusive Covid-19 test ahead of this weekend's British Grand Prix, his team said.

The Racing Point driver was absent from Thursday's official media activities as he awaited the outcome of a second test.

"@SChecoPerez is not at the circuit today following an inconclusive test result. He is self-isolating awaiting the results of a retest," tweeted Racing Point.

Formula One has a strict protocol for all involved at a Grand Prix with all personnel tested before each event and every five days.
