Leclerc contracts coronavirus for a second time

Leclerc contracts coronavirus for a second time

Ferrari has confirmed Charles Leclerc is self-isolating after again testing positive for Covid-19.

Leclerc has entered isolation for the second time this year after previously contracting the coronavirus in January.

Across the season, only two drivers missed races due to Covid, with Kimi Raikkonen absent in the Netherlands and Italy, whilst Nikita Mazepin was forced to sit out the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Revealing Leclerc's latest positive test, Ferrari said: "Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow driver Charles Leclerc has tested positive for COVID-19.

"In accordance with protocols required by FIA and the team, Charles was tested on his return from Abu Dhabi.

"He is currently feeling fine, with mild symptoms and will self-isolate at home."

Leclerc ended the F1 season seventh, dropping behind team-mate Carlos Sainz and McLaren driver Lando Norris after a 10th-place finish in Abu Dhabi.
