Massa wins French GP…as a gift from Raikkonen

Felipe Massa

Felipe Massa has won the French Grand Prix as the race-dominating Kimi Raikkonen experienced mid-race drama of his own.Kimi Raikkonen was cruising to certain victory when his Ferrari exhaust header came loose and caused him to slow the car to manage the increased temperatures around the chassis and sophisticated electronics now being blasted by super-heated exhaust.

The win places Massa at the top of the drivers championship just ahead of BMW’s Robert Kubica and Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen.  Toyota’s Jarno Trulli drove to an impressive 3rd holding off a hard-charging Heikki Kovalainen who finished 4th for McLaren-Mercedes.

Both BMW’s struggled this weekend with the tires, grip levels and pace leaving Robert Kubica finishing a distant 5th.
