Leberer plays down Raikkonen incident

Josef Leberer has played down suggestions he was almost struck by Kimi Raikkonen's Ferrari in Bahrain.

Finn Raikkonen was given an official reprimand for "dangerous" driving after he dodged around cars at the end of the pitlane during Friday practice.

Rumours had swirled in the media centre that Leberer, the well-known Sauber trainer, only narrowly managed to leap clear of the wayward Ferrari.

"I had to jump back a little bit," Leberer told Finland's Turun Sanomat newspaper, "but it didn't really frighten me."
