F1 » Raikkonen and Lotus shine in the desert night

A perfect start off the grid put Kimi Raikkonen into 2nd place in Abu Dhabi, and when race leader Lewis Hamilton succumbed to electrical issues the Finn seized his chance for glory.

Remember - Vettel is utter rubbish if he doesn't start on the front row!

Ha ha. That's the race a great driver. Too bad the children will not understand that.

what kimi did next... it would be nice to hear his radio messages more often. I said witmarsh is a mo*on. he proved it. no 2 let alonso pass easy. It's kimi's day but must ask this.
did vettel pass any cars from back of the pack?
did no2 score points?
finally what did they put in that rose water for vettel's tongue to slip so much. javascript:insertTextCursor('comment', ':p')

Lets face it.
Firstly, shame for Hamilton.

Kimi great drive.

Vettel ( I am not his biggest fan ) stella drive, a bit over anxious at times, but you can,t take it away. Brilliant.

However he did have a tacticle advantage delivered by his team and strategists, accompanied by two fortunate "Safety Car" periods.

Don,t get me wrong, he should have made the top eight all day long with ease, but he had a substantial speed advantage after his new car set-up was implemented.

Again, Stella Drive Sebastian.

Great drive from Raikkonen! He deserves it for sure! One of F1's top talents.

Great drive from Alonso! Having started 6th, he almost won the race in a relatively slow car. I really wish him to win the championship this year because I think he deserves it the most. A true champion.

Great drive from Vettel! He did well, but we should remember that SC, superior car and many retirements of others made huge contribution to that.

Great drive from Hamilton! It's so pitty that he again retired due to technical issues while leading the race. He should have won more races this year.
