|Formula One - European Grand Prix|
| Kimi Raikkonen bagged his third podium of the season in Valencia, and his second P2 finish, making the most of his race pace to finish behind 2012's first double winner, Fernando Alonso.
The Finn was disappointed not to finish on the top step, however, reasserting his Barcelona claim that the Lotus E20 has had the potential to have won nearly every race of the season. Despite this, Kimi sits sixth in the Drivers' Championship, 38 points behind leader Fernando Alonso.
Starting on the third row behind team-mate Romain Grosjean, Kimi was passed by Sauber's Kamui Kobayashi off the start. For the next 13 laps, the Finn found himself stuck behind first Kobayashi, then Pastor Maldonado, before he was able to pass the Williams driver on lap 13. Kimi then pitted on the next lap, emerging in P9. After losing a place on his outlap, Kimi then spent the next 14 laps on a charge up through the field, climbing to P4 before pitting under the Safety Car on lap 28. By lap 41, the Lotus driver was running in P3 while conserving his rubber. The conservation efforts paid off when Kimi slipped past the struggling Lewis Hamilton on lap 54. At the end of 57 tense laps Kimi crossed the finish line 6.4 seconds behind the Ferrari.
Romain retired from the race on lap 40, parking his E20 on track after alternator failure cut power to the electronics, preventing fuel flow. Before his retirement the Frenchman was the driver most likely to steal the win from Fernando Alonso; had Romain not been held up in the first stint by the slower McLaren of Lewis Hamilton, it is likely the retirement would have happened from the lead.
