GP Week : Issue 164
25 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS: Kimi Raikkonen is still without a win this season after notching up his third second place finish of the year in Budapest, after a storming drive from fourth on the grid. The result brings him to within two race wins of championship leader Alonso, with Lotus’s ever-improving pace making him a dark horse in the race for the title. A KERS failure at the start meant he lost a place to Alonso off the line, but pitting three laps later than the Spaniard first time around allowed him to regain that place. He then picked up three places during the second round of stops, leapfrogging Button, Vettel and team-mate Grosjean, the latter after a wheel-to-wheel dice into turn 1. Although he easily closed on Hamilton the tight confines of the Hungaroring meant he was never able to find a way past and took the flag 1 second behind the Briton. “It’s a shame we couldn’t quite get the win but it’s a good result for the team and we’ll keep pushing to make that final step,” said Kimi after the race. “My start was not too bad but then we had some issues with the KERS and I lost a place to Fernando. “When we got it working again we were stuck in the pack so it was a bit frustrating, but once we were in clear air we could push and it looked like we could make up a few places in the second stops.” Grosjean picked up the final podium place in third after another commendable drive from the Frenchman. The result pushes Lotus ahead of Ferrari in the constructors’ championship to third. ELUSIVE WIN STILL ELUDING KIMI F1 >>> BUDAPEST
