The Finn is nine points clear of Lewis Hamilton, whose McLaren was third behind Felipe Massa's Ferrari.

Raikkonen controlled the race, while Massa held off a late challenge from Hamilton, who himself had race-long pressure from Robert Kubica's BMW.

Fernando Alonso's Renault, which had qualified second to Raikkonen, retired from fifth place with engine failure.

The race was disrupted by two interventions by the safety car, the first on the first lap and the second following a nasty accident involving McLaren's Heikki Kovalainen.
