Raikkonen undergoes ‘totally successful’ surgery

ENSTONE, England (AP) — Lotus says Kimi Raikkonen has undergone back surgery in France and will begin his rehabilitation next week.

The Finnish driver had the operation at the University Hospital of Strasbourg, and doctor Afshin Gangi says it was “totally successful.”

Lotus says in a statement released Friday that “Kimi will now rest for a few days and he will start his recovery process as early as next week.”

The 32-year-old Raikkonen, who is joining Ferrari next season, will miss the season-ending races in the United States and Brazil.
