Takaaki Nakagami tests positive for COVID-19
LCR Honda IDEMITSU rider Takaaki Nakagami will miss this weekend’s Argentina GP after returning a positive test before heading to Termas de Rio Hondo.
Prior to flying to Argentina, Nakagami returned a positive PCR test. The rider has had no symptoms and took two more tests to be sure. All of them have returned positive. The Japanese rider will miss the Argentina GP this weekend but is hoping to be able to return to the paddock for the Americas GP next week.
“Unfortunately, I will not race this weekend in Argentina. I got a positive PCR test just before flying to Termas. I am really sorry for my team, sponsors and fans. I don’t have any symptoms and I am feeling good, I am just very sad and disappointed. I am hoping to be back on track in Austin for the Americas GP. Fingers crossed.” – Takaaki Nakagami
