Since arriving out here in Austria 🇦🇹 I’ve unfortunately tested positive for COVID. Gutted not to be joining the C4 team for the W-series & F1 coverage this weekend. Currently resting up & hoping to be fighting fit again soon! 💪🏼 Thanks for all the msgs, appreciate the support 💙 pic.twitter.com/VUZ200AYjf
