F1 standings after Spanish GP

Pastor Maldonado's victory and unusual top five shakes up F1 championship tables.
Pastor Maldonado's victory in the Spanish Grand Prix - the fifth different winner in as many races in 2012 - has again turned the F1 point standings on their head, with an unusual top five also adding to the mix.

Although Sebastian Vettel remains on top, despite finishing only sixth, he is joined by Fernando Alonso, who could not quite give the home crowd victory in Barcelona, but keeps Ferrari in the title hunt.

Lewis Hamilton holds on to third overall, after a comeback drive netted eighth from the back of the grid, while Kimi Raikkonen's second successive podium elevates the Finn into fourth spot, ahead of Mark Webber, who failed to score, and Jenson Button, who added just two points to his tally.

Red Bull continues to head the constructors' standings, now eleven points ahead of McLaren, while Lotus and McLaren close in on both frontrunners after their podium finishes. Williams, meanwhile, jumps into fifth spot, ahead of Sauber.

Fanboys are so sad that they even accuse the team that basically made their wonderboy of sabotage. Get a life children and just enjoy some good racing! You can always try to become a Kimi fan. No drama and BS there

Locks46 Did you notice that the BBC used The Beastie Boys song "Sabotage" at the end of their coverage today? Quite ironic given your mad beliefs. Are the cruel BBC messing with the fanboys heads? hmm could be a new conspiracy theory here lol.
