F1: Kimi “The Ice Man” Raikkonen Wins Belgium GP

The Ice Man commeth!!  This weekend was a return to form for the red team as 2007 world champ Kimi Raikkonen took the win at the Grand Prix of Belgium.  Although the competition was shaved down a bit as a massive collison took place before the first lap was complete.  A huge pile up in the second turn collected points leader Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton, and more than a few others which nicely thinned out the field for Kimi as he dodged the carbon fiber carnage.  In a pleasent surprise Giancarlo Fisichella (who won his first pole in several years over the weekend) earned a 2nd place podium and earned the first points ever for the Force India Mercedes team.  Good job Fisi!  Check out the SPEED post race commentary below.
