Raikkonen to be fit for Korea

Kimi Raikkonen's trainer has played down rumours the Finn could sit out next weekend's Korean grand prix.

The Lotus driver struggled with pain throughout the recent Singapore weekend, and it emerged afterwards that Raikkonen is suffering an injury where a rib meets his spine.

Subsequently, rumours emerged that the 2007 world champion will have to undergo surgery.

But Raikkonen's trainer Mark Arnall told the Finnish newspaper Turun Sanomat: "Kimi will be back in full running order next week in Korea."
