The Finnish driver will miss his second race after testing positive for Covid-19 during the Dutch Grand Prix.

Why it matters: It means that Robert Kubica will race for Alfa Romeo for the second weekend, as Raikkonen won’t be able to participate in the race at Monza.

I want to share my best wishes for Kimi: I hope he makes a full recovery and returns to the cockpit soon. I am looking forward to racing in Monza, an incredible track in which I claimed my first podium, in 2006.
