Kimi Raikkonen drove his McLaren to victory at Spa in Belgium a few minutes ago. Go McLaren.

Yes he was lucky the safety car came out otherwise he may have been struggling to stay in front. You could almost say the safety car won.

You may remember that the safety car came out twice,The first time it wiped out the 12.5 second lead Kimi had, with only 16 laps left in the race. Only 16 laps to catch up 12.5 seconds and get past a guy who will do anything to avoid being passed! Not likely in my opinion. Vince

Before the car came out Schumy was catching at a great rate of knots and the lap it had came out caught up 1 second. Also Schumy can pass anyone as we all know regardless of who it is. He is not world champion for nothing. 7 times at that.
