George Russell back in Williams car this weekend after Lewis Hamilton returns negative Covid tests

George Russell will not drive for Mercedes in this weekend's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix after seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton tested negative for Covid-19.

The young racing driver, from Tydd St Giles, filled in for Hamilton at the Sakhir Grand Prix in Bahrain last weekend and was unlucky to finish ninth after leading much of the race, only to be denied a podium finish by a pit stop mix-up and a burst tyre.

Former Wisbech Grammar School student Russell (22) will now return to Williams.
