Kimi Raikkonen drove very well at Spa, he was decisive and made a valiant final stab at holding on to his #1 status. It would all have worked too, the Finn was well in control of the race until rain came in the final laps and Ferrari ran up against its major issue of the 2008 season: the inability to get enough heat in the tires. In the rain, with dry weather tires, Hamilton had a better performing car, the grip conditions were so horrible that even a tiny advantage was the key to his being able to keep it, mostly, on the road.
This is a post for the seriously addicted, it is the complete race from onboard cameras, from warm-up lap to victory lane. If you are sick like me you will watch the whole thing, if not, you might skip about 1hr and 20 minutes in and see the incident everyone talked about endlessly. I think it's pretty clear cut but I'll refrain from further comment save to say that watching the last few laps from closer to the driver's prospective, I have nothing but increased admiration for all. They may as well have been driving on ice.
As an aside, I wonder how many would join me and petition for live multicasting of Grand Prix to be available World Wide. I would happily pay to have a service like Germany's Premiere or Italy's Sky TV offer, especially if available reliably via the web.
You'll find the clip after the jump.
