McLaren says it has withdrawn from the season-opening Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne after a team member tested positive for the coronavirus.

The British-based team says the person was self-isolated as soon as they 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.
