Alfa Romeo has confirmed Robert Kubica will continue to stand in for Kimi Raikkonen with the Finn unable to provide a negative Covid test ahead of the Italian Grand Prix weekend.
After completing the Friday practice sessions last weekend at Zandvoort, Raikkonen tested positive for Covid and in line with protocols was unable to take any further part in the weekend.
The Finn was replaced by Alfa Romeo reserve driver Kubica and had hoped to return for his final weekend at Monza after announcing his F1 retirement but this has not been possible.
"Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN can confirm that reserve driver, Robert Kubica, will continue to deputise for Kimi Raikkonen at this weekend's Italian Grand Prix," read a statement from Alfa Romeo.
"Kimi missed last week's race in Zandvoort after testing positive for Covid-19 and has not yet been cleared for a return to racing.
"As per the health authority requirements, he is still isolating in his home.
"Robert, who performed admirably in the Netherlands after stepping in at short notice before FP3, will return to the car alongside Antonio Giovinazzi."
