Giedo van der Garde will miss the World Endurance Championship 6 Hours of Monza after testing positive for the Coronavirus.

The Racin Team Nederland LMP2 driver will be replaced by Paul-Loup Chatin, driver from the European Le Mans series.

“Dear all, I’m absolutely gutted to say that I can’t drive in Monza this weekend because I have tested positive for COVID,” said the Dutchman in a statement.

“It’s an absolute mystery to me since I’m fully vaccinated and working my way towards the race – haven’t been to any social gatherings. That’s irrelevant for now though [as] I can’t race.

“The guys have found great replacement in Paul Chatin and I wish him, Frits, Nyck and the rest of Racing Team Nederland all the best for the race.”
