Safety Car, Korea International Circuit, 2013The appearance of the Safety Car in the middle of the race played into the hands of some drivers and spoiled the race for others.

It worked out best for Kimi Raikkonen, who’d made what turned out to be his final pit stop four laps before it came in. That stop jumped him ahead of Nico Hulkenberg, and the Safety Car got him ahead of Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton as well.

“People might say it was good luck with the safety car, but sometimes these things go with you and others they go against you,” said Raikkonen afterwards.

“We made up some places even before that happened, and if we hadn?t had the speed then we wouldn?t have been in a position to take advantage. You could see at the end that we had more than enough pace to keep the others behind, so I think it?s deserved.”

Raikkonen certainly helped himself when the opportunity presented itself – such as his team mate’s lap 37 error in the penultimate corner, which he opportunistically took advantage on to claim second place. For the second race in a row Raikkonen started in the middle of the pack and finished on the podium.

  1. “and the Safety Car got him ahead of Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton as well”
    Kimi was already ahead of them before the safetycar, jumped them with a early pit stop.

    1. Kimi was 3rd when it came out so even without it he would very likely have been on the podium.

    2. I think it’s referring to the strategy going on, in that without the safety car they may not have pitted, which may have left him vulnerable later in the race, however, as it was, it secured his position.

      1. If I remember correctly Kimi didn’t pit during the 1st safety car period (having done that a few laps earlier, so he was in 3rd when everyone else did. At least this is how i remember, but I mcould be wrong

  2. Notice how from lap 26 on, Hulk and Kimi have an almost similar evolution in terms of race position. One-two places gap between them until the very end. Great race from the both of them.

  3. So Vettel does get another grand chelem since Webber pitted before crossing the line in the lead

    1. Sadly, yes.

  4. Back to Back Grand Chellam for Sebastian. How many peoples do that

    1. Damn ….. Auto Correct again
      How many people did that in the past

    2. Nobody. He is the first one to do that.

      1. Another record for the list…

      2. I thought it was the first! Fantastic job by Vettel.

    3. @harsha @strontium @vettel1

      Clark did it in 1963 at the Dutch and French Grands Prix.
      Ascari did too in 1952 at the German and Dutch Grands Prix.
      Still very impressive company

      1. @mnm101 I was just taking other’s word for it! Cheers for clearing that up :D

  5. I did ask some if Webber pit that lap will put Vettel as “lead all laps”. Apparently the answer I got was no, Vettel did not lead all lap. But here the lap chart shows otherwise.

    Congratulations on 2 back to back Grand Chelem. Not an easy feat at all, let alone 1 Grand Chelem.

  6. Just Webbers luck, huh?

    Gets up to 3rd, get a puncture, pits twice in 2 laps, out of rubber so fits Options, out of top ten, no way he was going to make it to the end without pitting again, gets crashed by no fault of his own, and the car catches fire so badly, that it’s completely ruined.

    5 minutes… all of that. For a guy that’s short of motivation, it must be a big blow on the chin.

    1. @fer-no65 now lets wait for him to get another grid penalty for changing the engine.
      His luck today was really unbelievable

  7. Reason why Webber did not lead the lap where he pitted is probably because the Red Bull pit box is the first, and so before the finish line. If it was after the finish line, Webber may have crossed it first.

    1. Would the line at the end of the pits represent the start line in this case? I’m not sure …

      1. No, it is in exactly the same place as on the track. So some pit boxes are in front, and some others behind the line.

        1. Exactly, in fact I remember they had to change the pit lane entry line in Silverstone (last time they modified the track) because the teams found out that the fastest lap time was achieved by going into the pits at the end of the lap instead of completing the lap in the track.

          1. Brilliant XD

        2. The finish line is positioned either before the first pit or after the last one, hence all of the finish lines that are right after the last bend.

    So 2 grand chelems in which Vettel did lose his lead, yet regains it at the finish line, therefore de jure they still end up being grand chelems? Hmmmm……….

    1. Lead laps are counted when u cross the finish line. U can drive the whole lap in front of an other driver but if he passes u right before the finishline he gets de lap added to his tally

      Would you please confirm if this is true, @keithcollantine (sorry for tagging you again!)

      1. @davidnotcoulthard yep, a grand Chelem is defined by leading every lap of a race. Since he crossed the finish line of every lap in first place, he lead every lap for both of them and so along with his two poles and two fastest laps takes back-to-back grand Chelem’s! :D

      2. @davidnotcoulthard Yes he led every lap and therefore it counts as a ‘grand slam’/’grand chelem’, as noted here:

  9. has a safety car ever hindered Vettel? (not including it reducing the gap to the car behind him)
