Vettel on the podium. Raikkonen fifth.

10 May 2015

Montmelò, 10 May – Ferrari comes away from today’s Spanish Grand Prix at the Catalunya Circuit with a third and fifth place. Sebastian Vettel ran second in the first half the race, but had to give best to Lewis Hamilton after the second pit stop.

Vettel crossed the line in third place, managing the gap to Valtteri Bottas behind him. The Finn and his Williams were Kimi Raikkonen’s final target, after starting seventh and producing a spectacular opening lap to make up two places. Kimi continued to make up ground, closing right up to Bottas, but in the final laps, he had no real chance of getting past his fellow countryman. Victory went to Nico Rosberg.

In two weeks time, the Formula 1 circus sets up camp for the most prestigious round of the championship, the Monaco Grand Prix.
