2nd place for Kimi in Bahrain Grand Prix!
Sunday, 22 April 2012

Sebastian Vettel won a the race in Bahrain holding off a determined charge from Raikkonen who had started from 11th place!

On a day when Lotus-Renault delivered everything it had promised in the opening races, Kimi Raikkonen and team-mate Romain Grosjean hacked through the field to complete the podium behind the winning Red Bull.

"Of course I wanted to win and would have been much happier in myself if I had won but nevertheless the team deserved what they got and hopefully we can put ourselves in this position more often," Raikkonen said afterwards.

"We had the car already in the first three races to be up there but we made some small mistakes and it cost us too much.

"Today wasn't far away. I really should have made it but I didn't so, like I said hopefully we can put ourselves in this position more often to have a chance. But we have to work hard and improve certain areas of the car and I'm sure we can be up there more often and try to get the win."
