The various late-race charges not only accounted for Raikkonen, but also left Adrian Sutil nursing a worse result than his performance perhaps warranted. The German made the most of qualifying on row three to run in the top four for much of the race, but failing to take new tyres at the end saw him slip to seventh.
Likewise Daniel Ricciardo 'only' managed eighth after a strong audition for Webber's soon-to-be-vacant seat, while Paul di Resta made light of another qualifying nightmare - this time being demoted from fifth after returning an underweight Force India - to charge from the back of the grid into ninth at the flag.
So, does the race winner deserve your vote as 'driver of the day', or was one of the fightbacks more meritorious?
