As soon as the red lights went off Räikkönen takes over Heidfeld to the second position! 😀 And Alonso lost his sixth place to be seventh and after few minutes to be eighth! 😛
By the 7th lap Räikkönen has got bit lighter and started catching up with Hamilton that was about 3.1 sec a head of him! I was so amazing watching Räikkönen and Hamilton trading and swapping the fastest lap record for the race through out while the race goes on… There were times when all Hamilton saw from the side mirrors was red of Kimi’s Ferrari!
By the 34th lap the only driver that didn’t pit was Massa! He was taking a great but dangerous chance! As many thought he had nothing to lose!! He pits later on the 36th lap come out with soft tyres and fueled up for some more laps to go!
In the 37th lap Hamilton was a sandwich between the two Ferraris but as Massa was a lap behind the leader he pulled away from the Hamilton-Räikkönen battle.
It was a good race! The last 12 laps I had my heart pumping like a drum because of Räikkönen being so close to Hamilton but not getting any chance to pass!! It was such a close one!
By the end of the race Räikkönen 2nd and breaking the lap record for the race 1.20.047… As This result Ferrari is gains 8 points to be 119 points; while McLaren stays the same due to the penalty they got as the result of yesterday’s incident (F1 QUALIFICATION AT BUDAPEST… GOOD NEWS… BUT NOT SO FAIR!!!)!
