Kimi Raikkonen wins the British Grand Prix

Second win in a row for Kimi Raikkonen, after winning the British Grand Prix on Sunday.

Kimi Raikkonen wins the British Grand Prix Just as Felipe Massa predicted, the British Grand Prix was all about strategy and tactics. But it was his teammate Kimi Raikkonen who won the Formula 1 race, two seconds ahead of Fernando Alonso.

Lewis Hamilton started from the pole position and led the race up until he entered the pits to change tires and refuel, but Raikkonen and Alonso remained on the track. Kimi Raikonen followed Fernando Alonso for a pit-stop a little later into the race, and after service, Alonso came ahead of both Raikkonen and Lewis Hamilton, just to be passed by Raikkonen soon after.

Lewis Hamilton was pushing for a home turf victory, but was unable to match Alonso and Raikkonen. Hamilton still leads the Formula 1 driver standings 12 points ahead of Fernando Alonso.

The Ferrari team took the British Grand Prix top spot, followed by the two McLarens. Felipe Massa, whose Ferrari stalled at the start of the race, had to begin at the back of the line, but great driving skills pulled him all the way to finish 5th on Sunday.
