F1i's Driver Ratings for the 2019 Chinese GP

Kimi Raikkonen (P9, 2 pts): 8/10
Let's be honest, everyone had a soft spot for Kimi Raikkonen this weekend. How good would it have been if the sport's oldest active driver had succeeded in winning the 1,000th Grand Prix with Alfa Romeo, the marque whose Nino Farina had won the very first event at Silverstone in May 1950? But that would have been a fairy tale, and reality is invariably harder edged. Technical problems for the second car on Friday put the team behind on Saturday, and an abrupt drop in power - actually a sudden gust of wind - wrong-footed Raikkonen in qualifying. But the Iceman made steady progress from 13th on the grid and soon settled into a groove that saw him pick up a useful extra couple of points for the team at the chequered flag. Not bad for an old guy - not bad at all.
