Kimi grabs 2nd place at Hungary!
Sunday, 26 July 2009
Raikkonen drove a great Hungarian Grand Prix and eventually finished in second place, behind Lewis Hamilton, while Mark Webber took third place.

At the start, Raikkonen went past the slow-starting Vettel to take fourth, making contact on the way past. The incident, which eventually forced Vettel to retire after he had limped through his first stint, will be investigated by the stewards after the race.

This result was particularly pleasing for Scuderia Ferrari, given the traumatic time Felipe Massa has suffered following his horrific qualifying crash.

Raikkonen admitted that Hamilton was too fast to challenge once he was up to second.

"I tried to catch up, I thought I had the speed for that, but then we were at the same speed and he was faster so the gap stayed more or less then same, then I had some issues at last stop which didn't help," said Raikkonen.

The Finn will be investigated by the stewards after the race for his startline move, as he made contact with Sebastian Vettel - causing damage that eventually forced the Red Bull to retire - when squeezing through the slower-moving non-KERS cars.

But Raikkonen was bemused to learn of the investigation and felt he had done nothing wrong.
