Canada went 'according to plan' for Lotus

"I seemed to get stuck behind people a few times," he said. "The DRS zone is not very long, and it's still a difficult battle if the car ahead of you is also using the DRS. We had a chance to do a bit better, but it didn't quite all come together today."

Even so, eighth place means that a few more championship points were picked up - and in a year as tight as this, that's all important. "We scored points again so that's always a good thing, especially this season," Raikkonen agreed.

"It's two very solid drives we've had today," summed up Permane. "We're very happy to bounce back from Monaco in emphatic fashion."
