F1: Kimi dominates Istanbul

Monday, August 22, 2005

An excellent race in Turky last night! Kimi Raikkonen continues to close the gap in the Drivers' Championship race with a victory in yesterdays race. Having qualified first, Raikkonen lost the lead at the very start of the race to Renault's Fisichella, however, by the end of the opening lap, he got everything back in control and took it all the way home.

Meanwhile, Alonso finished in second place, losing only two points to Raikkonen in the battle for the 2005 World title. On the final lap, the Spaniard looked set for a P3 but Montoya who was on P2 ran wide due to a flat spotted tyre allowing Alonso to get through.

Another waste! The two Mclaren's could've made it an easy 1-2 but had slipped to a 1-3 and to add salt to the wound, the difference between Raikkonen and Alonso would be four points not two! Nonetheless, it had been a dramatic race and with both McLarens finishing the race, the fight for the constructors' and drivers' Championship continues in Monza...

Looks like we're gonna have a new champ this season!
