Williams CEO and Team Principal Jost Capito has tested positive for COVID-19, meaning he will miss this weekend's Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

"The FIA and Formula 1 can confirm that Williams Racing CEO and Team Principal Jost Capito has tested positive for COVID-19 prior to travelling to Jeddah for this weekend's Saudi Arabian Grand Prix," read a statement confirming the news.

"Jost is now following UK national health authority guidelines."

"No wider impact" at Williams

Capito is the only member of the team currently affected and their preparations for the event at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit won't be impacted.

"There has been no wider impact on Williams Racing personnel and the team will continue to operate trackside as planned," the statement added.

It comes ahead of a weekend during which Williams will pay tribute to Founder and former Team Principal Sir Frank Williams, who passed away on Sunday.
