Raikkonen recovers for fifth after ‘messing up’ start

[interactivecharts]Kimi Raikkonen had to race through the field for the second race in a row after failing to get away at the start of the Italian Grand Prix.

The Ferrari driver was mystified about what went wrong but team principal Maurizio Arrivabene suggested “maybe he messed up a bit at the start”.

“But afterwards he was able to pass a lot of cars on the track with a fantastic race,” Arrivabene added.

Raikkonen was dead last as the field sprinted towards the Rettifilio chicane for the first time, but as the hectic opening lap unfolded he immediately moved back up to 14th place. He easily dispensed with Fernando Alonso the next time by and over the course of the next four laps Daniel Ricciardo, Carlos Sainz Jnr and the other McLaren of Jenson Button all fell prey to his Ferrari.

The team left him out on his soft tyres for as long as they dared, 28 laps – ironically as long as Vettel went on his mediums at Spa before one of them blew – by which time Raikkonen was urging his team to bring him in. He’d continued his rise to third place, many due to others pitting before him, and returned to the track on medium tyres in tenth place.

He eventually crossed the line in fifth place, passing both the Mercedes-engined Force Indias on the way and profiting from Rosberg’s late retirement.

  1. Hmmmm….there were plenty of people ripping into Nico for his blown start in the previous race…where are those people now? Why are they not blasting Raikkonen for his failed start and his many mistakes in the Ferrari this year?

    1. Why don’t you simply shut up?

      Because kimi has character and a personality

    3. Neither of those are compelling reasons.

  2. Antony Davidson’s analysis makes it sound like it wasn’t Kimi’s fault

    But it does seem like it’s always something with Kimi. He can be the most infuriating driver to love.

  3. I cannot in all honesty understand why the hell Ferrari renewed his contract. He has demonstrated time and time again that he is a terrible and inconsistent driver. Sure, he is capable of some very good driving, we’ve all seen that, but he is the worst possible kind of driver. One passing glimpse at his results, especially recently and in Ferrari, the simple truth is that Ferrari is essentially running with just one driver.

    He should never have been taken back, and he should never have been kept Beyond the end of this season.

    1. So what about innocent until proven?

    2. It’s more like they are running with one car and the second driver just has to find his way back on his own.

    3. What you just said is perfectly on pair with Ferrari so what is your point ;)

    4. I imagine that there is a lot in life that you “cannot honestly understand”

  4. Kimi is by far a better pilot than Hamilton, give him Hamilton’s Mercedes and Kimi will be the world’s champion.

    1. As rookie Hamilton held his own against Alonso. We all know how the Alonso/Kimi pairing went. Saying Kimi is better than Hamilton is a bit of a stretch; especially at this point in their careers.

    2. Give Will Stevens a Mercedes and he will be World Champion.
