Kimi Raikkonen returns to action after a two-race hiatus due to contracting COVID-19 and looks to return in his cockpit.
- Alfa Romeo test driver Robert Kubica filled in for Raikkonen at the Dutch GP, and the Italian GP, and will return to his test driver duties.
What he had to say:
- “I’m pleased to be back in the car after missing two rounds. Obviously, nobody wants to test positive, but it happened and we had to follow the rules: but that is all in the past and now my focus is on Sochi.”
- “The team has shown some potential in the last few races, now we need to convert that into a good result. I don’t think being back will feel any different, I just want to get on with my job and hopefully have a good race.”
