F1: Kimi Raikkonen wins Spanish GP!

Monday, May 09, 2005

FINALLY! Kimi Raikkonen stormed to victory in the Spanish GP. This is Kimi's third career win and the first for McLaren this season. It's good to know that MCLaren finally got their act together and somehow managed to overcome their reliability problem.

Kimi led the Spanish GP from start to finish and was 27s ahead of homeboy Fernando Alonso. I am actually quite surprised by Kimi's blistering pace. At one point he was lapping 1s more than anyone on the track. Yikes!

Meanwhile Michael Schumacher's nightmare season continued when he suffered two separate punctures that forced him to retire for the third time this season. Sorry Ferrari fans... I am sure he'll do well again once Bridgestone finds a solution to the tyre-wear problem. ;) hehe.

If Kimi can maintain or improve on his current pace for the rest of the season, I reckon he'll be a serious contender for the Drivers' World Championship title. ;)
