Raikkonen wins French GP


Felipe Massa, Kimi Raikkonen, and Lewis Hamilton.
RaiRai and HamHam on podium, can I be any happier?

Starting from the second row of the starting grid, Kimi Raikkonen overtook Lewis Hamilton of McLaren Mercedes to take 2nd position from the start of the race. He was persistent and managed to maintain his position after his first pit stop when he rejoined comfortably behind Felipe Massa. The climax came when teamate Felipe Massa came out from the pits behind Kimi Raikkonen, releasing our champion into the lead, and his second victory of the season! With this win, Kimi is back as a title contender.

After 8 races, the victories are shared equally by 4 drivers, Hamilton, Alonso, Massa and Raikkonen with 2 victories each. Current Drivers Championship standings are Hamilton, Alonso, Massa and Raikkonen respectively, as Ferrari trails behind McLaren in the Constrctor's Championship. Full standings available, here.
