Norris, 21, said that he took a Covid-19 test after losing his sense of taste and smell.

"I feel alright and have no other symptoms," he wrote on Twitter here.

Norris is the fourth F1 driver to test positive for the novel coronavirus after seven-times champion Lewis Hamilton, Mexican Sergio Perez and Lance Stroll of Racing Point (now Aston Martin) returned positive tests last season.

Norris finished ninth in the drivers standings last season.
