After returning a positive Covid test on the Saturday morning of the Dutch Grand Prix weekend at Zandvoort, Raikkonen was forced to sit out the remainder of the event.
Reserve driver Robert Kubica deputised for the Finn and with Raikkonen self-isolating at home and unable to provide the two negative tests needed to return at Monza, Kubica remained in the car for the Italian Grand Prix.
Via social media, Raikkonen announced he will be back for the Sochi race in two weeks, writing, "I am all good. See you at the next GP."
