Raikkonen handed reprimand for pitlane infraction


Kimi Raikkonen has been handed a reprimand for driving dangerously in the pitlane.

Raikkonen and Lewis Hamilton cut back across the pit lane to round a Sauber that was waiting to leave the garage during the closing stages of second practice in Bahrain.

The stewards, after hearing from the Finn and his Ferrari team and investigating video evidence, found Raikkonen’s actions to be unsafe, handing him his first reprimand of the season.

“The driver of car 7 drove in a potentially dangerous manner when leaving the Pit Lane,” read a statement released by the stewards.
