Sainz and Raikkonen clash in final moments of F1 testing

New Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz found himself caught up in an incident with former Scuderia racer Kimi Raikkonen as F1 2021 pre-season testing came to an end.

Carlos Sainz ended the final moments of his first winter test for Ferrari by narrowly avoiding a close call with former Scuderia driver Kimi Raikkonen.

The Spaniard was running closely behind Raikkonen's Alfa Romeo during the last moments of Day Three in Bahrain when he attempted to overtake into turn 10. It forced the Finn to take avoiding action before both drivers ran wide.

Fortunately the incident didn't seem to cause any damage to either driver, with Sainz then seen returning to the pits.
