I watched the race highlights, not the race as i have an exam tomorrow. But anyway Lewis sort of deserved his first victory of the season. Kimi Raikkonen on the other hand deserved not to win or even finish the race. It seems the iceman is literally driving on ice and is having a hard time minus the traction control (there might be some other explanation, but i didn’t hear the on-race commentary, seeing the footage it all seemed like rookie mistakes to me) The race results are ::
