Williams will be without Team Principal Jost Capito in Saudi Arabia after he returned a positive Covid-19 test.
Formula 1 personnel travelling to Jeddah are required to undergo a pre-departure PCR test within 72 hours of flying and must also take one upon arrival in Saudi Arabia.
It was during the pre-flight PCR test that Capito returned a positive test.
Williams outlined that Capito is now following the United Kingdom’s guidelines.
There has been no wider impact on Williams’ Formula 1 personnel and the team will continue to operate as planned at Jeddah.
This weekend’s event is the first since the death of the team’s co-founder Sir Frank Williams.
A number of tributes are expected throughout the course of the event.
