Kimi Raikkonen 2013 season ends prematurely
Monday, 11 November 2013
Kimi Raikkonen is to miss the final two races of 2013 after electing to undergo back surgery. The back issues that nearly forced Kimi out of the 2013 Singapore Grand Prix got worse, so he decided to take early surgery. Speaking to Turun Sanomat, Raikkonen's manager Steve Robertson said: "In an ideal world it would have been nice to finish the season with Lotus. However, due to the severe pain that Kimi is having, sadly it is not possible." This kind of surgury usually requires a four-week recovery period. It is clear that Raikkonen would rather concentrate on his preparations for next season, when he returns to Ferrari.
