Raikkonen ruled out of Grands Prix

FORMULA ONE: Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen will miss the final two Grands Prix of the season, the team said last night, with the Finn set for surgery on a back problem. Raikkonen, who is leaving at the end of the season for a second stint at Ferrari, has argued that he has not been paid this year. Lotus say they will reveal a replacement driver “in due course”.
