Kimi Raikkonen wins astonishing, incident-packed Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
Sunday 04 November 2012
Kimi Raikkonen scored his first Formula One victory for more than three years by taking the chequered flag at the end of an astonishing, incident-packed Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
As a name in Formula One - bearing in mind the team has gone through various guises and owners in recent times - this was Lotus' first triumph since the 1987 USA East Grand Prix in Detroit.
Raikkonen, who inherited the lead after McLaren's Lewis Hamilton was forced to retire on lap 20 with an electrical failure on his McLaren, becomes the eighth different driver to win a race this year.
Hot on Raikkonen's heels was Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, who has only managed to cut the gap to title rival Sebastian Vettel by three points to 10.
That was following a stunning drive from the pit lane to third by the 24-year-old German.
