Kimi Raikkonen from Ferrari will not have to switch to a new motor in Monaco despite the engine problem that caused him to be out of the race at the Spanish Grand Prix.
Raikkonen had to leave the race after losing power in the 26th round. The rumor that Fin pilot must first stop the car was crawled in the garage afterwards.
Raikkonen's Ferrari V6 turbo engine appeared to have a problem with the power line to the left cylinder (power supply) and that the power cut off.
This is not an internal problem with the unit itself, so the new engine that is being used in Barcelona can be used after Monaco and after.
Ferrari had decided to replace Raikkonen's internal combustion engine, turbo and MGU-H after the problem he had been experiencing Friday's workouts.
Ferrari plans to bring the new engine upgrade to the Canadian Grand Prix and Raikkonen had to complete the Monaco Grand Prix with his first power unit under normal conditions.
This means that Raikkonen will wait for the German GP in July to use the new engine/performance update.
Waiting up to Germany also means that Raikkonen will be racing six races with engine parts fitted in Spain.
This is a minimum goal for Ferrari because the drivers will only be able to use three engines in 21 races, which means they will be punished for further changes.
Raikkonen needs a fourth power unit throughout the season, but with this strategy, the team is expected to get a grid penalty in just one race.
Sebastian Vettel, however, will have the Ferrari update for the Canadian Grand Prix. This means that Raikkonen will have to go through four races with an older engine used by Vettel.
Raikkonen has been out of the race for the second time this year, out of the race at the Spanish Grand Prix and is 47 points behind championship leader Lewis Hamilton.
The champion of 2007 was out of the race after the pit stop error in Bahrain and lost important points.
