Formula 1 is finally revving its engines in 2020.
"I will also do some karting to help get my body used to all the stresses again," the Briton is quoted by Speed Week. "It feels good to be in a racing car again."
F1 teams are also doubling their efforts to ensure they have enough reserve drivers on site in Austria, given that F1 CEO Chase Carey insists that the show will go on even if a race driver tests positive to corona.
"But we do have the Brazilian (Sergio) Sette Camara, who can be used as a substitute driver for both (Red Bull) teams," he added.
Mercedes' Stoffel Vandoorne and Esteban Gutierrez, meanwhile, will be on duty for the works team, Racing Point and even McLaren.
