The Finnish driver had the operation at the University Hospital of Strasbourg and his doctor called it ''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.
