Kimi Raikkonen: Alfa Romeo driver to miss Italian Grand Prix following positive Covid test

Alfa Romeo driver Kimi Raikkonen will miss this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix following his positive test for Covid-19. The Finn, 41, had to sit out last weekend’s Dutch Grand Prix and has not been cleared to return. Raikkonen, who was said by the team to have no symptoms, is isolating at home. Kubica will have his first experience of F1’s new ‘sprint qualifying’ format, which was first trialled at the British Grand Prix in July. This involves moving qualifying to Friday afternoon, and that setting the grid for a one-third distance race on Saturday which sets the grid for the grand prix.
