Formula One Lance Stroll makes himself available for Portuguese GP

FORMULA ONE driver Lance Stroll said he intends to race at the Portuguese Grand Prix this week after finishing a period of self-isolation following a positive test for the coronavirus.

Stroll, who drives for Racing Point, pulled out of the Eifel Grand Prix at the Nurburgring a day before the October 11 race because he felt unwell and said yesterday that he later tested positive for Covid-19.

In a post on Instagram, Stroll said he spent 10 days at home in self-isolation with mild symptoms and returned a negative test on Monday.

“I feel in great shape,” the Canadian driver wrote, “and I can’t wait to be back with the team and to race in Portugal.”

Stroll, who was replaced by Nico Hulkenberg at the Eifel GP, is in ninth place in the drivers’ standings on 57 points.

The first practice at the Algarve International Circuit in Portimao is on Friday.
