A spokesman for F1's governing body says the FIA will not take action against Kimi Raikkonen after an incident at Sakhir on Friday. Nicknamed 'the iceman', the Finn - although quickest in his Ferrari on the opening day of Bahrain action - lost his temper with Toro Rosso's Californian driver Scott Speed during the afternoon session.
On-board and still photography of the incident reveals Raikkonen, 27, showing Speed his middle finger. “He just didn't look in his mirrors and blocked me completely,” Kimi justified to reporters afterwards. Asked about Raikkonen's impolite behaviour, a FIA spokesman is quoted as telling German newspaper Bild: “He will not be penalised.”
