Kimi Raikkonen of Lotus F1 Team placed second at the recently concluded Spanish Grand Prix behind Fernando Alonso, marking the fifth straight race this season that a Renault-powered car made a podium finish.  Raikkonen’s second-place finish at the Spanish Grand Prix is his fourth podium in five races as well as his third consecutive podium finish, allowing him to further trim the lead in the driver’s championship race to just four points.

He has 85 points while Infiniti Red Bull Racing driver and current leader Sebastian Vettel has 89. Vettel came in fourth at the Spanish Grand Prix, with fellow Infiniti Red Bull Racing driver Mark Webber coming at fifth. Williams F1 Team’s Pastor Maldonado finished the race in 14th after losing some time with a drivethrough penalty for exceeding the pitlane speed limit.

Teammate Valtteri Bottas was 16th. Charles Pic of the Caterham F1 Team finished was 17th. All these drivers piloted Renault-powered cars. But, not all Renault-powered drivers made it to the finish line, as Lotus F1’s Romain Grosjean retired on lap eight with a broken rear suspension, while Caterham’s Giedo van der Garde retired on lap 21 due to loose left rear wheel.  Renault-powered teams started their run of podium finishes in Australia. Infiniti Red Bull Racing (131) and Lotus F1 Team (117) are first and third in the constructors’ championship.  Renault-powered teams have garnered a total of 242 points this year.
