Famed British Racer Lewis Hamilton is all set to take part in Abu Dhabi Grand Prix as he has recovered from the novel coronavirus.

According to the details, the seven-time world champion was tested positive for COVID-19 ON Nov 29, a day after winning the Bahrain race, and missed Sakhir Grand Prix that took place last week.

Mercedes in its statement said “Lewis tested negative for COVID-19 on Wednesday prior to completion of his self-isolation period in Bahrain. This enabled him to travel to Abu Dhabi on Thursday afternoon, and he tested negative on arrival.”

The automaker added that “Lewis has therefore completed the protocols required by the FIA for his entry to the paddock and will be able to take part in the race weekend.”

Lewis Hamilton has won the Abu Dhabi GP a record five times, including the past two years.

He won the Turkish Grand Prix and equaled Michael Schumacher’s record of seven Formula One championships.

Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2020 will be taking place at Yas Marina Circuit on Sunday, December 13th.

Moreover, Sunday will also feature Sebastian Vettel’s last race with Ferrari after joining the Italian team in 2015.
