F1 Drivers Championship after Spain

F1 Drivers Championship after Spanish Grand Prix

Pastor Maldonado after his win in Spanish Grand Prix broke into the top ten. He is currently 9th in the championship race with 29 points. Fernando Alonso with the second position in Spain picked up 18 valuable points to tie up with Sebastian Vettel at 61 points on top of the table.

Lewis Hamilton with 53 points is currently third on the race. With the amount of blunders committed by his McLaren team, there is virtually no hope despite his individual brilliance.

Kimi Raikkonen is at 53 points. Due to a bad strategy by Lotus, Kimi could not challenge for the first position. He had a longer first stint and a short last stint. So it was difficult for him to challenge for the top two steps of the podium. At the end he was 3.8 seconds adrift of the first position and only 0.6s behind the second placed Fernando Alonso.
