Mark Webber says that for the moment the Brazilian GP is just a normal weekend – although he concedes that will change as his final start approaches.

“I think on Sunday it will be a little bit different,” Webber said Thursday. “But it still feels like a normal race at the moment, so looking forward to Sunday in many ways, in terms of obviously pushing for a good result, but also I’m ready to stop and looking forward to the extended winter that I’ll have, and the new challenges around the corner. Getting out of the car Sunday, there will be a few things that will be for the last obviously in terms of Formula One, but I’m pretty relaxed at the moment and looking forward to the race.”

Webber admits that he’ll miss driving in F1 at the most historic circuits.

Kimi Raikkonen will miss the US and Brazilian GPs due to surgery on the back problem that reappeared over the Singapore GP weekend.

Finnish paper Turun Sanomat revealed today that the Lotus driver has opted not to compromise preparations for his return to Ferrari in 2014.

“Kimi will travel to Salzburg on Thursday and the operation will be carried out Thursday or possibly Friday,” his manager Steve Robertson told FOX Sports.com. “The doctor treating Kimi has already worked on Kimi’s back issue in the past. Having had cortisone injections in the back already this year and due to the discomfort of being in continuous pain it was felt there is no alternative to delay the operation.”
