Kimi Raikkonen has been allowed to change engines overnight because the McLaren team was able to prove to the FIA that the Finn's Mercedes-Benz engine was physically damaged. This was verified by the FIA before the go ahead was given for the change.

We also hear that Jacques Villeneuve is also being allowed an engine change because of an internal problem which showed up on the telemetry.
