Alfa Romeo punished after incident with Raikkonen's wheel

Alfa Romeo had a double start of the season. On the one hand Antonio Giovinazzi raked in the first points of the season with a ninth place, but on the other hand Kimi Raikkonen lost his right front wheel just after a pit stop and fell out.

Punishment for Alfa Romeo

Alfa Romeo was called to the stewards immediately after the match. Loose parts on Formula 1 cars can result in high penalties in Formula 1, because the loose parts are dangerous for other drivers and personnel along the track.

However, the team gets away with a fine of 5,000 euros. Raikkonen will also receive no further penalties for the next race.
