Raikkonen wins Belgian Grand Prix

Kimi Raikkonen came through to take the victory at the Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday for Ferrari - but only just ahead of Force India's Giancarlo Fisichella.

Raikkonen took the lead from pole-man Fischella on the run to Les Combes after the re-start. The safety car had been deployed following the incident on the first lap, which saw four drivers retire, including current championship leader, Jenson Button and fellow Brit Lewis Hamilton.

Sebastian Vettel meanwhile took the final spot on the podium, followed by the BMW Sauber's of Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld.

McLaren's Heikki Kovalainen rounded out the top six, with Rubens Barrichello seventh, despite problems late on, which culminated with his Brawn GP car finishing the race on fire!

Nico Rosberg took the final point in eighth for Williams with Mark Webber and Timo Glock completing the top ten.

Full report and result to follow soon...

Yes, he went way off line to the tarmac. I thought as well that he left the track to improve his position. He would have been neck deep in kitty litter had the tarmac not been there.

Am i the only person to think Raikkonen was very lucky not to get a penalty for his blatent cheating at the first corner.He went way off the track,not because he was pushed there, and got a fabulous sling shot to become second by eau rouge!!!!!!!!!!!!! He gained at least 3 positions by doing that.If the rn off was gravel then he wouldnt hae taken that blatent line. I thought a ver boring race,,thank god for moto gp
