Perez had only mild symptoms and is ready for return Barcelona

There is a good chance that Sergio Perez will return to the F1 paddock this weekend. It has been more than a fortnight since he tested positive for COVID-19. Should he be negative now, he may start the weekend.

At least the Mexican says he's ready for it: “I’ve definitely missed racing and it was hard to watch from the outside. I can’t wait to get on track, hopefully this weekend.”

Racing Point will also be fast in Barcelona

“I’m very lucky that I’ve only had mild symptoms, so I’ve been able to keep training and make sure that I’m ready to jump back behind the wheel of the car. I’m very glad I had my tablet to keep me entertained too, though”, Perez said to Formula1.com.

That Perez hopes to be on the grid in Barcelona is not so surprising. During the winter tests in February they were already here blood-fast. According to many the fastest team after Mercedes and Red Bull Racing. It was also the moment when the world discovered that the Racing Point looks a lot like a Mercedes. That case is now also in the spotlight again.
