Formula One: Injury-hit Kimi Raikkonen unsure over Korean Grand Prix
SINGAPORE (AFP) - Kimi Raikkonen on Sunday admitted back pain nearly kept him out of the Singapore Grand Prix and could put him in doubt for the next race in South Korea after he braved the injury to place third.
The former world champion needed intense physiotherapy to race in Singapore and it came up trumps as he made it onto the podium behind Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso.
Afterwards the 33-year-old Finn, who is moving to Ferrari next season, said it was "not for sure" that he'd make the next race in South Korea in two weeks' time.
"I didn't feel it too much but obviously it's not ideal. Yesterday was pretty bad, I almost didn't drive," he said.
