Raikkonen return still on schedule

 

Lotus Renault say Kimi Raikkonen is "absolutely fine" after the 2007 Formula One world champion, who is returning to the sport next season, suffered a fall in a snowmobile race in Austria on Saturday.

"Kimi went off during a snowmobile competition in Austria today but he's absolutely fine," Renault said on the team's official Twitter feed. A second tweet added: "We just spoke to Kimi. There's nothing to worry about, he only has a sore wrist. He might have it checked again on Monday, but that's all."

Raikkonen signed for the team last week after two years away from Formula One, agreeing a two-year deal with Renault.
