The Ferrari of Carlos Sainz was called in for a randomly-selected inspection by the FIA after the Bahrain Grand Prix, it has been confirmed.

A Technical Delegate's Report has been released, which states that Sainz's car was chosen as part of a process in which a car that finishes inside the top 10 is selected at random for further physical inspections.

The document from Jo Bauer, FIA Formula 1 Technical Delegate, reads: "After the race of the Bahrain GP, car number 55 was randomly chosen among the top 10 cars for more extensive physical inspections.

"Subject to these physical inspections were front and rear wheel bodywork, front and rear wheel covers, front and rear wheel rims and front and rear wheel fasteners."

It goes on to confirm that there were no issues found on Sainz's Ferrari.

"All inspected components were found to be in compliance with the 2022 Formula 1 Technical Regulations," the report concludes.

A strong start to the 2022 campaign for Sainz

It looked to be a strong weekend for Sainz in Bahrain, with the Spaniard completing Ferrari's 1-2 finish behind Charles Leclerc.

However, Sainz admits that he struggled more throughout the three days in Sakhir in comparison to his teammate.

"For me, it's been a very tricky weekend, I'm not gonna lie," he said after the race.

"I didn't have the pace today, but I managed to hold in there and bring the 1-2 for the team.

"I have some homework to do over these next few days and I'm sure I will come back stronger."

The Scuderia will be looking to follow up their dominant display in Bahrain at the second event of the season, the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, this weekend.
