Raikkonen extends lead in Barcelona

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen extended his lead at the top of the F1 championship to nine points when he won the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona from start to finish.

After winning a dramatic pole on Saturday, Raikkonen made the most of his pole position to finish on top as his team-mate Felipe Massa finished second to make another Ferrari one two in consecutive races.

Lewis Hamilton took the last podium place to make it to the podium after missing on the last two races. I thought it was very tight between second and fourth position as BMW Sauber's Robert Kubica closed in on Hamilton whilst while Hamilton was closing in on Massa.

Mark Webber had his best finish of the season so far as he got fifth place. Webber qualified seventh on the grid on Saturday but retirement for former champion Renault's Fernando Alonso and a penalty for BMW Sauber's Nick Heidfeld made sure he got fifth place.

Webber got seventh place in Bahrain and its good to see another improvement this time and I hope a podium place is around the corner.

Honda's Jenson Button finished sixth to score the first points for his team this year and behind him was Kazuki Nakajima who got another two points for Williams. So far I thinks its looking good for Williams although Nico Rosberg could not finish the race.

The Williams team has so far managed to score points in every race which is not bad and I think the move to Toyota engines is beginning to pay off.

In the last points position was Toyota's Jarno Trulli and just behind him was Heidfeld who suffered a or making a stop for fuel and tyres when the pit lane was closed during the safety car period.

The next race will be in two weeks time in Turkey and I am sure there will be a lot of drivers hoping for better luck after nine failed to finish in Barcelona.
