The PA news agency has reported that the owner of Racing Point, Canadian-billionaire been Lawrence Stroll also contracted COVID-19 testing positive when his son did so earlier this month.

Racing Point say the 61-year-old, a high-risk age-group,  spent 10 days in quarantine at his Swiss home and has since displayed no symptoms of the illness and is active once again.

The team are facing questions over their handling of the incident after failing to report the extent of Lance’s case to the FIA, and as to why he was allowed to travel home despite showing signs of the virus.

Racing Point say they followed FIA protocols which ensures all F1 personnel must be tested every five days and were advised by a doctor that Stroll’s symptoms were not indicative of COVID-19.
