Australian McLaren driver Daniel Ricciardo has confirmed that he has tested positive for coronavirus.
“Better this week than next. Unfortunately, I will miss the tests, but I’m already starting to feel better. I will stay in isolation and just focus on next weekend. Many thanks to Lando and McLaren for backing me up, I owe you a beer (Lando is milk). Thank you everyone for the well wishes,” Ricciardo wrote on Instagram.
