Ferrari blinks first?

Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali thinks his team will change Kimi Raikkonen's engine for the British Grand Prix following his exhaust problems in Magny-Cours.



Appears Kimi's engine was indeed cooked in France otherwise Domeniceli wouldn't even be 'thinking' about it now would he?

I "think" about being with a hot model, but I don't think it's going to happen. :drunk:

^^ Aha! They would also look smart should they risk it and everything turns out fine at Silverstone no? Afterall they will have a free engine change to gamble with come the critical arse end of the season no?

they will change it
a DNF costs way more than 1-2 positions gained in the last race where you can gamble with reliability

i would suggest they may not be completely confident in how the engine performed through the second half of the race due to an important sensor for the physical output flailing in the breeze.....this is the critical arse middle of the season ;) they know what they're doing i'm sure
