Raikkonen escapes penalty for unsafe driving in Monaco GP


It was announced after the Monaco GP today that Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen has escaped a penalty in the aftermath of the Monaco Grand Prix after having been investigated for unsafe driving.

Raikkonen’s Monaco Grand Prix came to a premature end on lap 11, shortly after he had broken his front wing at Grand Hotel Hairpin. Raikkonen tried to continue on during the race, baulking Romain Grosjean at Mirabeau Bas (which then prompted radio anger from the Frenchman) and then retiring in the run-off at Nouvelle Chicane; with the debris from his Ferrari machine collected by the Sauber of Felipe Nasr later on.

After hearing from the Finn, F1’s stewards decided there was no ground to penalise Raikkonen. In an statement given by the FIA this evening, they concluded the following:-

‘The driver, in evidence, stated that he thought initially that he could safely proceed to
the pits to replace the nose. Radio messages confirm this. The team advised the driver that he needed to stop the car as soon as possible. The driver stated that he wanted to stop the car in a safe place and the first available place was the runoff area at Turn 10.’
