World Champion Kimi Raikkonen takes the chequered flag followed by team-mate Felipe Massa closely behind with Lewis Hamilton completing the podium.

After a three week break, the F1 season resumed and Ferrari have picked up where they left off with their second 1-2 finish in a row with World Champion Kimi Raikkonen taking the chequered flag followed by team-mate Felipe Massa closely behind with Lewis Hamilton completing the podium.

For the last seven years the Barcelona Grand Prix has been won by the driver standing in pole position and Kimi wasn't about to let the run come to a halt. Despite the close times of the top drivers, the Flying Finn was always very comfortable with no real challenge coming from Massa for the lead.

Lewis Hamilton has had a troublesome few weeks after a disastrous Bahrain Grand Prix in which the Briton finished 13th resulting in a large amount of criticism coming his way. His third position came from a very solid race and could signal the return to form for last seasons runner up.

Things didn't go so well for his McLaren team-mate Heikki Kovalainen, who crashed out on lap 23 on turn nine when his MP4-23 suffered front left wheel failure sending the Finn into the tyre wall head on, fortunately he got away with a concussion.

The result extends Raikkonen's championship lead to nine points over Lewis who moves up to second, just one point ahead of Massa.
