Melbourne: The British-based McLaren Mercedes Formula One team on Thursday pulled out of the season-opening Australian Grand Prix after one of the team members tested positive for coronavirus.

McLaren says the person was self-isolated as soon as he started to show symptoms and ”will now enter a period of quarantine.”

Team officials have taken the decision to pull out of Sunday’s race ”based on a duty of care” for McLaren employees and the wider Formula One family.

Qualifying was scheduled to start Friday.
