Kimi Raikkonen to assess back in South Korea

Kimi Raikkonen will assess his troublesome back during practice at next week's Korean Grand Prix.

Kimi Raikkonen has said that he will assess hit fitness during practice for the Korean Grand Prix next weekend.

The Finnish driver suffered back problems throughout the Singapore GP and qualified a lowly 13th, although he did finish on the podium.

Raikkonen told reporters: "It's better than it was on Saturday in Singapore which is when it didn't feel too good.

"It's not the first time I've had a problem, as there have been some issues with my back for a long time."

The Lotus racer currently lies fourth in the Drivers' Championship, 98 points behind Sebastian Vettel.
