Ferrari have reviewed their pitstop procedures after an incident at the Bahrain Grand Prix left a mechanic with a broken leg, team principal Maurizio Arrivabene said on Friday. After having surgery in Bahrain, Cigarini had returned home, Arrivabene said.

“We went through all the procedure ... and making sure that this thing doesn’t happen again.

“In this case, we have three factors - one involves human control, the other involves mechanical and the other involves (an) electronic device,” said Arrivabene explaining what went wrong.

“What’s happened there, we had a mishandling of the rear left, was not perfectly read by the electronic device that gives the green light.”

After having surgery in Bahrain, Cigarini had returned home, Arrivabene said.

“Of course, as team principal, I’m in contact with him,” he said. “He’s back to Italy, he’s at home and he’s okay.”
