Perez went back to Mexico before positive test

These are the possible replacements for Sergio Perez in British Grand Prix

Nico Hulkenberg will replace Racing Point's Sergio Perez for this weekend's British Grand Prix following the Mexican's positive test for coronavirus.

However, German Hulkenberg has not yet been confirmed for next weekend's 70th Anniversary Grand Prix. The night shift guys have done a great job to fit me in the auto and even quite comfortably! "It just shows how vulnerable we all are to this". Hulkenberg sprinted down to his team area, got into a set of Lance Stroll's overalls - handily the Canadian is also on the tall side - and bolted on his black helmet (with Racing Point's sponsors applied) so that he could strap into the RP20.

In a video message on Twitter, Perez said he had taken a private plane home to see his mother for two days after she suffered an accident. Then I came back to Europe, same way, with all the protocols in place.

"Our philosophy is we take all precautions necessary in light of where we're traveling and if we do take those precautions, I'm confident we won't get the virus".

Hulkenberg, who was out of F1 after being dropped by Renault at the end of last season, returns to the team he raced for in 2012 and between 2014 and 2016.

Racing Point does have an agreement in place with Mercedes to use their reserve drivers should the need to replace their usual race drivers emerge.

"In a bid to minimise disruption and ensure the best possible chance of building upon the team's strong start to the 2020 campaign, Nico's familiarity with the team will prove invaluable".

Another GMC Hummer EV Truck Teaser
The roofline and rear quarter appears softer than the hard-edged H2 SUV of yore, and the roofline appears lower. Instead of bringing back HUMMER as a standalone brand, GM opted to make it a model line sold under GMC .

Racing Point - which gets its engines from Mercedes - basically copied Mercedes' auto design from 2019 for the 2020 season and it's paid off.

Hulkenberg was due to be taking part in a GT auto test at the Nurburgring, but abandoned those plans to accept Racing Point's offer and fly to Silverstone.

"That was less than 24 hours ago, so it feels a bit surreal for me right now - but I like a good challenge and this is certainly one".

While Gutierrez drove up from London - where he is based - Hulkenberg headed over to the United Kingdom from Germany, with his boots and helmet, landing in Birmingham at 19:00, before travelling to Racing Point's factory.

First and foremost Perez's health is the most important aspect, and everyone wishes him a speedy and full recovery.

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said on Friday that Perez's positive COVID-19 test was a "stark reminder" to F1 of the risks it still faces around the world.
