Raikkonen under investigation for Sainz FP2 chop

Kimi Raikkonen will face a stewards’ investigation after second free practice for the Brazilian Grand Prix, following a moment in the session when he cut across the front of rival Carlos Sainz as he dived in to the pits.

Raikkonen and Sainz were running close to each other on the track shortly after the start of the session after the Ferrari driver had locked up and run wide at Turn 9.

Sainz slotted in ahead of him and then locked up at Turn 10, with the pair of drivers running in close formation as they finished the lap.

Raikkonen then powered his way around the outside of Sainz on the run up the hill out of the final corner, before quickly switching left across the front of the Toro Rosso driver to go into the pits.

The FIA stewards announced shortly afterwards that the matter would be investigated once the track action had finished and both drivers could be spoken to.

Raikkonen could face a potential sanction if the stewards deem that his move risked causing a potential accident.
