Normally, drivers attend media and sponsor functions, meet with their engineers and walk the circuit at Grand Prix venues on the day before the official practice action kicks off.

But according to the Finnish MTV3 broadcaster, 2007 world champion Raikkonen was on Thursday still holidaying in Los Angeles, in the wake of last weekend's US Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.

Meanwhile, Lotus team boss Eric Boullier denied reports the 33-year-old has not been paid all the points bonus money he is contractually entitled to.

"Kimi has got all the money which he has earned so far," the Frenchman insisted.
