    Ferrari's pit system gave a green light to Raikkonen, indicating he could exit the pits, despite the mechanics not having replaced his left rear tire.

    Ferrari team driver Kimi Raikkonen failed to finish the Formula One race at the Bahrain GP over the pit-stop incident. When Raikkonen drove to the pit-stop, the pit crew member needed to fit a new left rear tire to the car, but as there was a problem with the removal of the old one, he was still in position and had not yet moved when Raikkonen was released back out onto the track. The mechanic suffered a fractured leg and has been taken to the hospital. Race officials have fine Ferrari 50,000 euros for an unsafe release.
