Ferrari team boss Marco Mattiacci said: "The most important news right now is that Kimi is alright, even though the impact with the barriers was a heavy one. He has some bruising and will now be resting to be in shape for the next race."

Raikkonen added on Sunday: "Unfortunately, my race today ended on the first lap, after I had managed to get away well, making up enough ground to be fighting for eleventh place. At turn 5, I went off the track and while trying to get back on, I must have hit a kerb.

"I then lost control of the car and ended in the barriers. It's a real shame because yesterday, the feeling I had on track had improved and I was determined to do my utmost to bring home some points.

"I am really very disappointed with how things went today, but now I want to put this incident behind me and just concentrate on the next race in Germany."

Meanwhile, Mercedes have confirmed that both world championship leader Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton will be involved across the two testing days this week.
