Ferrari has confirmed that its F1 driver Kimi Raikkonen "took a hard knock to an ankle and has pain in a knee". Now he will have to sit out the post-British Formula 1 GP test session.

HOCKENHEIM, Germany -  Kimi Raikkonen will contest this weekend's 2014 German Formula 1 GP here.

He bruised an ankle and knee in a serious crash just after the start of the British Formula 1 GP on July 8 and had to sit out Ferrari's post-race Silverstone test but Finnish broadcaster MTV3 said the 34-year-old was fighting fit for Hockenheim.

The Maranello-based team confirmed: "Kimi Raikkonen will be at the wheel of his F14-T in the German GP."

CALLING IT QUITS?

Raikkonen caused a stir by saying at Silverstone that he would "probably" quit after 2015 but he insists he is still enjoying his time at Ferrari. He told Sky Sport: "I think it's a very good place to be. The racing hasn't been very good through 2014 but that's the way it goes sometimes.

"We are trying to fix things, I need something very specific to be happy with the car and right now it's not happening, but for sure if I could choose to race for any team, I would take Ferrari.

"The day I hate racing I will stop, even if it's in the middle of the year I would walk away, but it's not now."

Meanwhile, Italy's Omnicorse motorsport reports that, as part of a restructuring at McLaren, Jenson Button has a new race engineer for Hockenheim and beyond.

The report said Tom Stallard would or has replaced Dave Robson.
