The Ferrari speedy to make the red flags following losing control of his F14 on the Wellington Straight and striking the barriers with a collision measured at 47G.

The Italian outfit principal Marco Mattiacci has said that Raikkonen sustained no serious injuries: “The most important news right now is that Kimi is alright, even though the impact with the barriers was a heavy one.

“He has some bruising and will now be resting to be in shape for the next race.”

Kimi Raikkonen said about the unlucky incident – “Unfortunately, my race today ended on the first lap, after I had managed to get away well, making up enough ground to be fighting for eleventh place.”

“At turn 5, I went off the track and while trying to get back on, I must have hit a kerb. I then lost control of the car and ended in the barriers. It’s a real shame because yesterday, the feeling I had on track had improved and I was determined to do my utmost to bring home some points.”

“I am really very disappointed with how things went today, but now I want to put this incident behind me and just concentrate on the next race in Germany.”
