Raikkonen facing 10-place penalty

Kimi Raikkonen may have won the opening round of the World Championship in Australia but it seems that Ferrari may make the decision to switch his engine before the Malaysian Grand Prix and thus Kimi will have to take a 10-place penalty on the grid in Sepang. It seems that the engine suffered a small water leak in the closing stages of the race in Melbourne and Ferrari must decide if it iss worth risking a non-finish or going for a more reliable new engine and hoping to score as amny points as possible in Malaysia and Bahrain.
