“Kimi shows no symptoms and is doing well. He immediately closed himself in isolation at his hotel. The team wishes him a speedy recovery,” Alfa Romeo’s representatives said in an official statement.

The 41-year-old Räikkönen announced this week that he will end his F1 career after the season, in which he has collected a record 341 starts so far. It is not yet clear whether he will be able to return to the next Italian Grand Prix, which is scheduled for next weekend.
