In the third series race is former world champion in 2007 was likely on the podium, and to prove that he is still fabulous. However, the Finnish rider hopes shattered due to the wrong team in implementing the strategy of replacement tires. isa past

When the race took 56 laps, Raikkonen was in second behind Nico Rosberg (the winner of the Mercedes team) started to lap 42. While the riders have entered the third pit (last) and replace with medium tires made ​​between lap37 to lap40, Raikkonen is still racing at the track.

Apparently, the Lotus team set a two-time replacement for Raikkonen tire. Apparently, the tactic is not appropriate because the tire's durability is reduced drastically. He was overtaken by the end of lap 12 riders from 47, so until the end of the race to finish in the 14 and 50 seconds further adrift with Rosberg.

"We're trying to run two stops (pitstop) and it looks very fast. Until the last 10 laps, the tires still in good condition, but after that to finish, its performance is declining," lamented Raikkonen.

Admittedly, he got stuck behind Felipe Massa and can not be long enough to pass quickly from the right side. "Even if I got through it, I do not think it would make a different result at the end of the race," he continued.

If Lotus also uses 3 times the pitstop strategy likely to be on the podium. Nevertheless, despite Raikkonen failed, Lotus was able to reap the numbers through the driver Romain Grosjean who finished sixth.
