Alfa Romeo team principal Frederic Vasseur has tested positive for Covid-19 and will not fly to Bahrain for preseason testing from March 12-14, Formula One and the team said on Thursday.

Alfa Romeo said Vasseur is not displaying any symptoms and would be “fully operational and connected to the garage” during testing.

“Vasseur will continue to isolate at home for the next seven days,” Formula One said in a statement.

“No other members of the Alfa Romeo Racing team have been affected and the procedures set out by the FIA and Formula 1 will ensure no wider impact on this week's preseason test which will continue as planned.”

The 2021 Formula One season begins with the Bahrain Grand Prix from March 26-28.
