|The weekend starts with bad luck for Räikkonen: On Friday his engine fails (again) and he has to go back 10 positions on the starting grid. (again)
But during qualifying it is wet and it starts to rain more and more heavily. All top-drivers have to start from the back: Alonso from position 16, Räikkonen from 17 and Montoya from 18. Only Fisichella goes into the race from grid position 3.
So the race starts with many overtaking right from the beginning. Montoya retires quite early, but Räikkonen and Alonso gain positions quite fast.
During the first round of pit stops, Räikkonen can pass Alonso. After the second round it looks like Räikkonen is doing just one pit stop and going for a sure - and seemingly easy - win. However Räikkonen has to go to the pits and falls behing Fisichella but is able to regain the lead in the last lap!
Räikkonen surely performed extremely well, but Alonso's performance is also noticable: Because of rather unlucky pit stops, he has to overtake a lot of drivers on the track and is able to get from grid position 16 to final position 3.
Dissapointing is Fisichella. With position 3 on the starting grid and the nearest car from a top-team 13 places behind him, he should have won the race easily.
