Lotus Monzarella

Posted By F1 Fast Lap

The Italian GP at the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza held little in the way of celebration for the Lotus F1® Team. In a race that never really got off the ground for a team more used to pole positions and podiums, both Kimi Räikkönen and Romain Grosjean were embroiled in a fight that would see them finish marginally better than they started, in this the 12th round of the 2013 F1® Championship.

Qualifying was dismal and saw neither driver start in the top ten, Kimi Räikkönen begun from P11 and Romain Grosjean P13. As soon as the lights were out, Kimi’s assault was evident but came to an abrupt end when Sergio Perez darted in front of Kimi causing Räikkönen’s brakes to lock and the Lotus to slide into the back of the McLaren causing front wing damage and an early pit stop for the Finn. This early drama consequently saw him slide down to P21, in lap 3.
Undeterred however, and revealing his inherent skill Kimi marched on, battling hard to deliver some of the fastest lap times of the race as he sliced his way heroically to P5, before his tyres gave way and another pit stop saw him slide to P14.

Lap 47 saw Kimi in P11 and a tense defence in keeping Lewis Hamilton who was hot on the Iceman’s tail behind him. Despite Kimi’s sterling effort, Lewis took P11 in lap 48 forcing Kimi to P12 before he finally regained the spot, finishing the race and taking the flag in P11.

Team pal Romain Grosjean held a consistent pace throughout the race, although contact from Force India’s Paul Di Resta and a slow pit stop did nothing to aid the Frenchman’s fight to the front. Never-the-less a solid performance saw Grosjean finish in P8.

Kimi retains 4th place in the Drivers Championship with the team also holding 4th place in the Constructors Championship with 191 points. <<source>> 

Kimi Raikkonen will race for Ferrari next season after agreeing a two-year deal that takes the 2007 Formula 1 World Champion back to the glamour team which he left in 2009.

Ferrari said in a statement that the 33-year-old Finnish ‘Iceman’, currently competing for Lotus, will replace Brazilian Felipe Massa alongside Spain’s double world champion Fernando Alonso.

“Scuderia Ferrari announces that it has reached an agreement with Kimi Raikkonen. The Finn will join Fernando Alonso in the driver line-up for the next two racing seasons,” the statement said.

Raikkonen said, “I am really happy to be returning to Maranello where I previously spent three fantastic and very successful years,” said Kimi. “I have so many memories of my time at Ferrari, memories which have stayed with me these past years, first and foremost, winning the World Championship title in 2007, which was really unforgettable.” <<source>>
