|Formula One - Monaco GP Race Report|
| The Lotus F1 Team came away disappointed from Monaco on Sunday after securing just two world championship points courtesy of a ninth place finish for Kimi Raikkönen , despite an encouraging qualifying session on Saturday.
Although Raikkönen struggled to get his tyres up to temperature on his way to eighth on the grid, team-mate Romain Grosjean finished the session in fifth, before being promoted to fourth when Mercedes' Michael Schumacher took a five-place grid penalty. It was all over for the Frenchman 100 metres into the race, however, when he made contact with Michael Schumacher on the run down to Turn 1. He retired on the spot after a 90-degree spin.
Kimi survived the first-corner melée and kept pace with world champion Sebastian Vettel for much of the first stint, but his tyres had soon had enough. He stayed out on-track to wait for the expected rain that never materialised, hurting his points-scoring chances and dropping him from seventh to 11th. One retirement and one pitstop for drivers ahead promoted the Finn to ninth, where he finished.
The result drops Lotus to fourth place in the constructors' championship on 86 points behind Ferrari, while Raikkönen lies sixth in the drivers' championship on 51 points, two places lower than he began the weekend. Grosjean remains eighth on 35 points.
