Engine-inspection decides whether Kimi continues or not

– It got some error. The engine took a bit of fire, we stopped and extinguised it but then it stopped 500 meters later, Räikkönen told TS.

Kaj Lindström explained that all of a sudden smoke was coming under the hood and then the flames took off.

The car was in the furthest possible place from the service park. Räikkönen was picked up by a helicopter.

Räikkönen isn't throwing in the towel right away. They will inspect the engine and depending on the damages he knows whether he can continue the rally on Saturday or not. He has a huge urge to finally get on Spain's tarmac.
