Autosport (UK) - - RACE CENTRE -

Miss­ing out on pole po­si­tion was down to the lack of a tow, which was ex­cus­able. His re­cov­ery in a dam­aged car in the race was ex­cel­lent, but the bot­tom line is he al­lowed Hamil­ton to force him into an­other of the mis­judge­ments that have cost him so much this year – hence the rat­ing. Raikko­nen de­serves huge credit for fi­nally taking a pole po­si­tion after wast­ing so many pre­vi­ous op­por­tu­ni­ties – and by a very healthy mar­gin. He failed to turn the lead into vic­tory but, given the tyre blis­ters and Hamil­ton’s strength, he was al­ways fight­ing a los­ing bat­tle.
