Unwell Stroll misses final Eifel practice, Mercedes on top

Unwell Stroll misses final Eifel practice, Mercedes on top”

Lance Stroll will not participate in final practice for Formula 1's Eifel Grand Prix due to illness and could miss the remainder of the weekend's action.

The German driver would qualify 20th out of 20 driver.

Hulkenberg replaced the COVID-positive Sergio Perez at Silverstone for the British GP weekend, but had more notice on that occasion.

Meanwhile, Hulkenberg traveled from Cologne, where he was to comment on the race for German television, when on Saturday morning he was contacted by Racing Point.

The German will start last on the grid as he had no time to acclimatise to a vehicle that has changed since his last outing at Silverstone across the weekends of the British and 70th Anniversary Grands Prix when he deputised for Sergio Perez following a positive Covid test. There's a couple of technical bits that are very different that give the driver different sensations, so I had to adjust around that a bit and just find my feet again.

"We said before the race that I want to stay well out of trouble and just stay away".

"Back to #hulkenback", he posted on Twitter over a photograph of his paddock pass after passing a Covid-19 test on arrival. And after the burnouts I just did one, so I was in a kind of no energy mode.

"They told me on the radio that now Racing Point is P3 in the championship, which is obviously great for them", Hulkenberg said. "After the safety vehicle I was able to pressure Daniel and I nearly got him into turn 4 but I wasn't able to make it stick".

"And last night he had a bit of an upset stomach".

"I don't know what happens from here on", he said.

"I'm going to catch up with Lance on the phone later and we're looking forward to him returning".

"Then I managed to make the tyre last, and I think a long first stint was key then to a successful result". Otherwise yesterday we would have called Hulkenberg a day earlier, and he would have done FP3'.

In addition he was driving at a circuit which had not hosted a Formula One race since 2013.

Hulkenberg was thrown in the deep end by having to drive the vehicle for the first time in almost two months since featuring at the two events at Silverstone.

'We made some changes to the auto since he drove it last.

"It felt quite different to Silverstone, completely different circuit, the vehicle has moved on too".
