Problems for Ferrari ahead of Saudi Arabian GP

There's been some panic in the Ferrari garage ahead of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, due to an issue on one of their cars.

The Ferrari mechanics have had to complete some last-minute work on one of their cars ahead of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, with an issue identified on Carlos Sainz's F1-75. With just over an hour until the race, the Ferrari mechanics swarmed all over Sainz's car as they worked on an initially unidentified issue. Sainz is due to start the race from third on the grid and, at the time of writing, there's no reason to suspect that the Spaniard's starting position will change.

A stressful race build up for Sainz and Ferrari

The cars are all in parc ferme conditions since the beginning of Saturday'squalifying session, meaning Ferrari cannot make any parts changes that aren't of the exact same specification. However, they are permitted to swap out components for those of the same specification. Ferrari confirmed that an issue was discovered on Sainz's car in the lead-up to the race, and subsequently explained that the problem has been rectified. "We had an issue on a loom," the team stated, referring to a wiring loom within the car. "[It is] now repaired."
