Three #F1 world champions of which two were retired on the podium!
But will Schumacher be disqualified after using DRS under yellow?
The most sensational race of the season and the best one ever in Valencia.
If you had told anyone in advance that Grosjean would be battling for second place nobody would have believed it. If you had suggested a Lotus would end on second place with good old Kimi behind the wheel people would laugh at you and that Schumacher would end up in third place starting at 12th seemed impossible.
Engine failures, accidents, lots of passes on the circuit and in the end an emotional Schumacher just behind his old arch-rival Raikkonen. It must be the best podium ever in history with world champions from 1994 to 2007 standing on a 2012 podium
And true to form Schumacher was happily smiling between the two Ferrari guys on the podium while Kimi didn´t smile at all but just drank the champagne 🙂
The sensational result:
7) Di Resta
10) Maldonado (under investigation)
1. Red Bull 176
2. McLaren 137
3. Lotus 126
4. Ferrari 122
5. Mercedes 92
6. Sauber 60
7. Williams 45
8. Force India 44
9. Toro Rosso 6
10. Caterham 0
11. Marussia 0
12. HRT 0
One thought on “Three world champions on the podium in Valencia”
Excellent race. Kimi did smile, though!! And look at the Force India and Caterham positions!!
